Behere Tuesdays

for Wild Reading and Emotional Intelligence enrichment

9am — Noon

There's nothing quite like Behere Tuesdays. We use stories that capture the spirit of nature and our own relationships with it, wild reading exposes children to many valuable life lessons and educational skills along the way. It is a way to give children the foundational building blocks for phonemic awareness and phonics, while also strengthening their own awareness and appreciation of nature. Children will be developing reading skills while interacting with the natural world and expanding curiosity and wonder. Forest school classes will include nature based crafts and projects. We use nature to let the children learn reading. We also incorporate sensory play with mud, clay, paint and more. So dress for mess! Children will also learn about local flora and fauna as well as den building, foraging and other bushcraft skills. All of this takes place in a safe and nurturing environment, led by our highly experienced and qualified teachers. Come join us for a Behere Tuesday today!

Behere Wednesdays

for Creative Arts Enrichment

9am — Noon

Laura Belevica is leading a nature-based art workshop, called ConnectedKind, that unlocks the genius in all of us, so that our brains become wired to see many solutions and possibilities. By using the shadows found in everyday natural elements, Laura will Guide your child on how to play with perception and imagination by finding meaning and endless creative potential in shadows - literally as well as metaphorically. Be it a flower, a dry leaf, a branch or a human being - the subjects are carefully photographed to capture their unique shadows that then serve as the starting point for the artwork that offers alternative interpretations of identity.

Emily Groenhuizen

Outdoor and Nature Guide

Emily Groenhuizen is a homeschool mother and has been teaching and caring for infants, toddlers, and children for 14 years.

She began her career as a preschool teacher in Gillette, Wyoming. The daycare in Wyoming had specific rules that a California native like Emily wasn't used too.

There she and the kids would spend the entire day outside as long as the weather was zero degrees or above.

The kids were tough, resilient and had room to be free and so did she.  Then she came back to California and got a degree in Early childhood education and began her family. After her daughter was born she opened an in home daycare.

Today she is still working with kids as a homeschool mother and Founder of Conejo Forest School, where she teaches children the beauty of nature!

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.
