Social-Emotional Learning: Resources for Families

  • The Imagine Neighborhood: This new podcast for families is designed to help children and grown-ups practice their social-emotional skills. Each episode tells a story that’s amazing, fantastical, and maybe a little bananas, while it tackles the big feelings that come with growing up. 
  • Mind Yeti: Fifteen mindfulness program sessions are now available for anyone to use, no experience necessary! Designed for educators and families to do alongside children, or for older children to do on their own, Mind Yeti provides a great way for everyone to practice mindfulness. 
  • Little Children, Big Challenges: Committee for Children and Sesame Street have partnered to create a collection of resources for young children facing significant challenges. These materials, aimed at building children’s resilience, may be useful for and families. 
  • Hot Chocolate Talk: A resource to help families talk with their children about child sexual abuse. Families may be spending a lot more time together during school closures, which makes this an opportune time to have these difficult but very important conversations.

COVID-19 Update

COVID-19 Update, Summer 2020:

Dear Prospective Parents and Caregivers,

Woodland Schoolhouse is currently closed but planning to reopen entirely outdoors in September. We’ve always been a small, “mostly outdoor” school so, fortunately, this is a natural and minimal shift for us. We are taking COVID precautions very seriously and have implemented many new routines and policies designed to keep our environment as safe as possible while open.

I’m deeply thankful for the opportunity to offer a joyful, outdoor environment where your child can grow and thrive with a small, consistent group of friends this year. If you’re interested in enrolling your child this fall, please fill out our wait list form and I will reach out to schedule a time for us to connect.

Warmly,

Nicole
