Our program is located on a working, family owned farm. Our indoor classroom, outdoor playground, garden, and nature trails are all designed to allow children to explore, face new challenges, and develop a sense of independence and self-reliance. A variety of unique experiences will be available to our students such as interacting with the animals on site (like goats, rabbits, dogs, and cats), building fires, climbing trees, growing their own food, and much more.

Roots of Life encourages the involvement of parents and families as we believe it is a united effort to support the holistic growth and development of our children. Therefore, we do ask that parents be willing to volunteer their time (such as by preparing food, supporting on a field trip, working on the property, making toys, etc.) We will also offer extended activities for parents and families such as a monthly discussion group. When a child joins Roots of Life, the family joins us as well. It is a space for living and learning together.
