Our Home-School curriculum provides an exciting learning experience developed to really engage students in the study of topics combining environmental studies, nature, history, and science. Home school lessons are based on a nationally recognized curriculum and are correlated with state standards in Life Science, Physical Science, and History.
The perfect way to introduce your preschooler to natural science and history! Our Preschool Adventure series is based on a nationally recognized curriculum in life and physical sciences. Each adventure is different and has a theme chosen to spark a preschooler’s imagination. Included is a brief nature hike and a hands-on activity or craft.
Adventurers will learn all about Autrey Mill’s Animal Ambassadors. Discover where in the world the animals came from and how they are cared for. Offered on select Thursdays.
Cooking and Crafts program focuses on experiencing history through vintage recipes and crafts of the past. The themes and activities vary; so attend one or all. Topics may include- butter, ice pops, ice cream, mini pies, or hotcakes. If the stove or oven is used it is by the instructor. The children only combine ingredients. Each class stands on its own, so attend one, all, or several.
