The SOIL experience is within the warm setting of our home constructed in the late 1960’s assists seeds ages 2 to 12 years, into our experimental learning environment. Skills learned at these ages focus primarily on developing social skills - following directions, respecting others, building self-esteem, sharing, cooperative play and getting along with others.
Our program supports the developmental curiosity of the young mind and enhances the child in the areas of math, language arts, science, social studies, music, art, technology, and religion. Children are encouraged to develop skills in listening and confidence in verbal expression.
In history, the children learn that humans evolved millions of years ago from Mother Africa. We help our seeds come to an awareness of love in themselves and in others. Each month, the seeds are introduced to a social cause. These are identified as current events that help our social missions.
Positive choices and redirection is offered as our discipline plan when needed. The homeschool values set by our families during the year help in reminding students of behavioral expectations.
