Farm School

Farm Preschool: Ages 4 & 5

During Farm Preschool nature is the classroom and the teacher.  During this 3 hour experience your little learner will help feed the animals, collect eggs, harvest and plant in the children’s garden, and explore the surrounding natural areas on the farm.  This program is a compassionate space where children feel safe to grow and learn.

The small group size allows Farm School Leaders to move at your child’s pace and for the flexibility to follow the specific interest of the children.  Farm life cycles provide the setting for the development of curiosity and the early understanding of how life works. At Stratford, your preschooler will learn with their body by doing and through play, engaging all their senses. This holistic experiential-education will reinforce your child’s early connection to the natural world.

Farm School: Ages 6 – 12

At Farm School nature is the classroom and the teacher.  Children will rediscover their joy of learning as they care for farm animals, tend gardens and explore native Ohio habitats.  Lessons are naturally intertwined into hands-on activities exploring concepts that support our food system and our environment.  Farm School will support grade level Ohio Academic Standards for Science.  Check with your district about Alternative Learning Experience credit.

In addition to animal chores, organic gardening and magic spot, the 2021 fall Farm School session will include seasonal activities such as; making apple cider and sauce,  harvesting the fall crop, preparing the animal barn and garden for winter, and more.  We will celebrate the harvest by preparing farm fresh seasonal dishes.
