WHAT SERVICES DO YOU PROVIDE?

1. PRESCHOOL – NATURE KIDS ACADEMY

Our children are precious, and in a world continuing to go down a path of learning with 2D screens, we believe we need to reverse that trend. Studies have shown the benefit of nature in our lives. Our children need to be at peace with themselves and the world around them so they can be ready for the challenges they will face as adults. At Nature Kids Academy we put that into practice with our youngest learners, building a foundation that will benefit them throughout their lives. Our program is available from 8:30 AM – 12:30 PM M-F and follows the Ashland School District schedule.

2. ASHLAND AERONAUTS HOMESCHOOL PROGRAM (ELEMENTARY)

Monday-Friday from 1-5 PM

Many families are reluctant to send their children back to school and are instead choosing to homeschool their children. As a teacher (and a parent who has also homeschooled his own children) I know the struggles that surface while homeschooling. Whether your child needs social interactions, exercise, or creative and specialized help with school work, I can provide all of the above. I pride myself on getting to know each child individually so I can provide the most efficient learning environment for each individual. This is one of the reasons the group size is so small (8-10 max) Under most circumstances, we can complete daily school work/learning projects within the time provided.

OUR GOAL AT R.V.E.S. is to provide a positive educational experience for all ages, whether preschool-age learners in the Nature Kids Academy or elementary-age students in our Ashland Aeronauts after-school program. We facilitate independent learning, keep students on track with the educational standards, foster positive and respectful relationships, nurture a love of learning in all students and inspire a love for the outdoors through exploration and volunteerism.
