Wasatch Wanderers

Wasatch Wanderers

CCNS is excited to introduce a new outdoor education program in the fall of 2017! The Wasatch Wanderers will be a semester long class (September – December, February-May) that meets once a week in the mornings. The focus will be on outdoor education, exploration, and learning through nature. The class will not be based in a classroom, but rather will provide hands-on exploration through field experience and will be taught by veteran preschool teachers, Terry Crandall and Dana Powers.

Due to the unique nature of this program, interested families should note the following

Logistics:

-Parents will need to drop off their student at the designated location each week and will be asked to help coordinate carpool efforts to transport students back to school for afternoon classes.
-There will be no co-oping responsibility connected to the class.
-Families will also need to provide the required weather gear for their child, to include rain and snow clothes, as plans will only change due to extreme temperatures or unsafe air quality.
-Students will need to provide a lunch and will be given an opportunity to eat between Wasatch Wanderers and their afternoon class. A snack will be provided by the school during class.

Curriculum: For each class meeting, there will be a location, a theme, and possible activities. For example, the class may take a trip up Mill Creek Canyon where the class explores the theme of sounds in nature. Possible activities could include the students creating a musical parade or exploring questions like “Why does one tree sound different from another when you hit it?” or “Can we create songs using lines that rhyme with tree?”

Enrollment: Students can enroll in either a Monday or Wednesday morning class that runs from 9:00-11:30. Priority will be given to four year-olds and students enrolled in another CCNS class; however, if space is available, it will open to younger students and students outside of CCNS.

Cost: $80.00/month plus a one-time activity fee collected at the beginning of the semester to cover the cost of rentals, entrance fees, and materials. If you choose to apply for the program, please be prepared to tell us what days you may prefer. Enrollment for the spring semester (February – May) will occur in late fall of 2017, but you can choose this option now so that we are aware of interest in Spring.






Please double check the year is correct for your child’s birth year!
