Morning Song is an independent, nature immersion program for school-aged children in Lawrence Kansas. Our entirely outdoor program is based on the Forest School model that embodies holistic learning and development in the natural world. Currently, we offer programming on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 9:00 am-3:00 pm with the option of 2-day or 3-day per week enrollment.
Our emergent curriculum is child-centered and offers sensory-rich, exploratory learning. Deep, imaginative play is prioritized for our youngest learners. Observation of children's interests and experiences and the rhythms of nature become the basis for lesson planning, hands-on projects, and curriculum development.
Most importantly, our program is rooted in interpersonal connection and developing strong, healthy relationships with teachers, peers, and the outdoor environment.
Our inclusive community is neurodiversity-affirming, culturally responsive, and centers the right of children to inhabit and engage with natural spaces.
