Behere Tuesdays

for Wild Reading and Emotional Intelligence enrichment

9am — Noon

There's nothing quite like Behere Tuesdays. We use outdoor adventure, stories, and project-based learning to embrace the wild in us all and capture the spirit of nature and our own relationships with it. We fuse forest school inspired experiences and emotional wellness coaching through nature-based crafts and group projects. We do our best to infuse early reading concepts through letter hunts, storytelling, and phonemic awareness exercises on the go, but the biggest thing we teach children through this workshop is how to become more self aware of their emotions, and regulate them in a healthy way. We introduce emotional regulation, mindfulness and growth mindset techniques to give children the soft skills they need to become healthy humans and strong leaders. This is a highly sensory experience where children are encouraged to play with mud, paint and feel big feelings. All of this takes place in a safe and nurturing environment, led by our talented and loving Guides. Come join us for a Behere Tuesday today!

Behere Thursdays

for Wild Math® and Emotional Intelligence Enrichment

9am — Noon

Behere Thursdays is our Waldorf-inspired workshop guided by Mrs. Rinks, who brings a holistic math experience to the children. Math is woven into all aspects of life and Mrs. Rinks makes math come alive through whole body experiences with historical information, scientific elements, and an understanding of the natural world, using art, handwork, language, music and even physical education. If you're expecting worksheets and memorization to get your kid adding double digits asap, this isn't the workshop for you. But over time, your child can learn all the math they need to know through this beautiful method of teaching. Math is everywhere, and in this worksop we take children on a global journey into math that immerses them into the subject without them realizing it. This is a workshops that will help your children become enamored with numbers and natural math all around them with concepts that "go to sleep" and awaken years later compounding their learning well into their teens.

Hilary Boynton
School of Lunch founder + Behere Advisor

founder of School of Lunch (SOL), is a mother of five who refused to accept the quality of food her children were being served during school lunch. She began a relentless mission to change the status quo, and eventually took over the lunch program at her local school in Topanga CA. She worked with local farmers and food producers to create an affordable nutrient dense meal program that was based on the foundation of ancestral ways of eating. The results were astounding. It all stemmed from what she calls a Regen-Living lifestyle, where we strive for a symbiotic relationship between our bodies and our external environment.
