Roots+Wings Playschool is a toddler and preschool member community in Greenville, SC. This group of mindful parents meets two to three times a month in an environment that encourages kindness, learning, and play.
The core of Roots+Wings Playschool is nature. We believe children should interact with natural elements on a daily basis and that the best teaching tools are found elements from trails, backyards and our natural environment.
How is Roots + Wings Playschool different from other programs or mom groups?
We aren’t a program. Playschool is about community. It is about offering learning opportunities and invitations to play to the children and giving the parents time to sit back and chat. There are short lessons, but endless opportunities for learning. We expose the children to many different types of learning activities such as science experiments, creative arts, and fine/gross motor practice. We focus on community and relationships. Having a smaller group of children and parents interacting each week is pillar to our program. Right now, Playschool is limited to only Roots+Wings Nature School is families!
Who is the teacher?
Natasha is the teacher of Playschool. She loves the opportunity to share her love or reading and play with the students. Natasha’s background is in special education and play-based learning. She believes most academics can be learned through engaging in play and fun.
What is the style?
Our play school gathers inspiration from many different education philosophies including Waldorf, Charlotte Mason, Reggio and Montessori. Our goal is to appreciate and practice the learning styles of numerous mindful educators in order for each parent to discover the style that best fits their family. The core of Roots+Wings Playschool is nature. We believe children should interact with natural elements on a daily basis and that the best teaching tools are found elements from trails, backyards and our natural environment. We study one author per month. We read books by the author and engage in social-emotional play and nature based art related to the books. And lots of free play!
