Spring River offers programing and support to the growing homeschool community in Northeast Florida seeking a holistic education. We welcome those that are interested in using a curriculum inspired by Waldorf methods and view of childhood development, or those that may be seeking arts-infused holistic classes to enrich their other homeschool courses.
We provide support and a social network for those families that can join us for a full week of classes, or who are only interested in a few days a week, whether main lesson or just for afternoon enrichment classes. We also welcome all families from the greater community to our events, parent education, playdates and festivals. All are welcome!
Below is a brief overview of the Spring River Curriculum, which is divided into two 16 week segments from August through June of each year.
We offer 2 or 4 day options for Main Lesson with teachers who are trained in methods inspired by Waldorf curriculum for First-Fifth Grade. We offer a 2 day option for Middle Schoolers.
What is a Main Lesson? A Main Lesson is an extended period of time in which all academic subjects, such as language arts, math, social studies, etc., are taught. The subjects in the main lesson blocks are covered in depth for a period of 2 to 8 or more week cycles depending on the topic and student needs.
We also provide 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 day options for Enrichment Programs designed to compliment the Main Lesson courses, to support and enrich a Waldorf curriculum that is taught in the home, or to act as stand alone enrichment courses to support other homeschool arts-based curriculum. Examples of those classes are Art, Handwork, World Languages, Science, Movement, and Drama. We also offer a 4 hour Forest School Class on Wednesdays.
