My 2.5 year old son has been attending Good Earth Farm school for 6 months and we're just in love with it. As a single full-time working mom, I had a really hard time getting used to the idea of sending my son to a full-time school at such a young age. But I can honestly and truly say that he has blossomed there. His language and social skills have developed so much. He's in the Saplings class and loves talking about all of his little friends and teachers when he's at home.
My absolute favorite thing about farm school is how they spend so much time outdoors. My son comes home tired and dirty and talks about his "nature walks". I love that it's play-based, and that they don't send home dozens of art projects per month. I love the all-natural materials, the wooden toys, and the home environment in a center setting. My son helps make lunches, wash dishes, clean up the tables, sweeps. And the ANIMALS! He's always raving about the goats and the bunnies and the cat. It's just such a wonderful, loving preschool. And the food for the young kids is vegetarian, organic, local, and seems to be quite tasty.
I can't recommend this school enough.
