PoemTree After-School Program for Ages 5-12
PoemTree After-School Program is a nature-based program inspired by forest schools for children and pre-teens between the ages of 5 and 12, led by experienced outdoor educators. This creative, play-based (mostly) program offers children the gift of free time to play, explore their own imaginations and build creative outdoor skills in the woods.
PoemTree runs Monday-Friday, 3:00-5:30 p.m., with a choice of attending two, three, or five days a week.
Busing is available from nearby elementary schools -- email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
What Goes on During PoemTree?
Our main activity is free play in nearby woods and green space. However, on any given day at PoemTree, you may find your child:
During the winter months when days are shorter, we are at times forced indoors, where our main activities are playing board games, cooking, making art and other forms of crafting and handwork (like weaving, knitting, sewing, and painting).
As a child-led center, we follow the impulses and interests of the children. Seasonally, we explore different themes or skills.
Tuition for 2023-24 school year:
2-day week: $145/month
3-day week: $217/month
5-day week: $361/month
★One month’s tuition deposit is required at registration to hold spot, deposit is applied to last month’s tuition.
Give your child or pre-teen the gift of free time, space to play a chance to build creative outdoor skills with their friends in the woods!
Note: Space is limited. Once you apply, a member of Prairie Flower's enrollment team will contact you.
In woods, creeks & ravines
We swear to care for bees and trees
and all living things between
In words, deeds & responses
We strive to be kind and mindful
to ourselves, our teachers, and our fellows
In works, dreams & creations
We will go forth playfully
to build and imagine new things
