Spring River offers flexible programing and support to the growing homeschool community in Northeast Florida seeking a holistic education. We welcome those that are interested in an education inspired by Waldorf methods and a "whole child" view of human development, or those 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 five days 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!
The Spring River Curriculum is divided into two 16 week segments from August through early May of each year, with an add-on option for the remainder of May.
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 that includes math, creative writing, science, & art.
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 offer afternoon Enrichment Programs M/T/Th and F 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. Beginning fall of 2020, we will be offering Kindergarten Enrichment for children who turn 5 by September 1, 2020.
