Grades 3, 4 & 5

Outdoor Class

Ready to tackle big topics ... together

Our Middles kids are at that age where they want to have fun with friends but are ready to engage in critical conversations.

We embed silliness and play in our learning, but our discussions nudge your child to develop important skills  such as:  self-regulation, empathy, perspective-taking and more.

Debate games are the hook - but our real aim is to help your child develop a better sense of self in relation to others while solving problems and exploring ideas we may or may not share with one another. (Scroll down to learn more)
