Side By Side
Anne Aycock, Side by Side Program Coordinator
Side by Side activity days take place on six Saturdays during the school year. Activities emphasize eco-literacy and support learning by building social and academic skills and stimulating curiosity. Supervised and led by the adult instructor, each child has a teen mentor assisted by a junior mentor, and together they participate in activities that may include cider pressing, cooking and baking, seasonal crafts, garden activities and regular visits to the animals at the adjacent farm. Storytelling, drama, singing, creative projects and poetry round out the day.
