LITTLE OTTERS KINDERGARTEN THROUGH SECOND GRADE PROGRAM
Nature and Play-based
Little Otters Program is a nature and play-based program for children ages 5-8 located at beautiful Emery Farm in Durham, NH.
EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM FOR CHILDREN AGES 5-8
We offer a balanced curriculum learning through play and exploration in nature. We teach literacy using the Fundations program and Reading and Writing Workshop models. Mathematics is taught using the Wild Math and Everyday Math programs. Our curriculum focuses on teaching about the natural and farm environments, as well as focusing on social skills to foster kindness, respect, resiliency, empathy, and a love for living things. We ensure a 1:6 teacher/student ratio or better.
Emery Farm is a well established family farm on the seacoast of New Hampshire. Little Otters’ beautiful indoor classroom is above the Market and Cafe. We also have an outdoor structure and utilize the trails and other natural aspects for learning and play space.
Our program hours for kindergarten age children are 8:30-12:30.
First grade age children may choose 8:30-12:30 or the extended hours.
Hours for second grade age children are 8:30-2:00.
This allows our students time to practice social skills and learn with a low student to teacher ratio, while also having ample family time.
