Homeschool Playgroup for Younger Siblings
If you have a 6 - 10-year-old enrolled with us, we now offer a companion playgroup for younger siblings!
Unlike our academic classes for older students, our homeschool playgroup is all about Project Based Learning. Based on the children’s interest, we will explore collaborative projects while incorporating early elements of reading and math concepts.
Examples of possible group projects include building a terrarium, creating a classroom post office or raising caterpillars.
This playgroup is designed to support families in teaching their children early literacy and math skills, to offer students the opportunity to work, play and socialize with peers and to foster community among homeschool families.
About our educator:
Juliet Davis has spent her whole career working in education, with students of all ages. She has a Masters in Teaching from the University of Virginia and is certified to teach grades 7-12 Earth and Space Science in New York State.
She taught middle school science in the East Village for five years, though for the last almost ten years, she has been focused on working with younger children. For five years, she was an assistant teacher in the 2x2 program at the 14th Street Y, which is a gentle separation for two year olds and their families.
She has been a student teacher in a Montessori preschool and a traditional NYCDOE Kindergarten classroom and observed children of various ages and at various schools. She also has three children of her own, who go to PS110 in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
