Chickadees are our youngest wanderers (3-5 years). They return again and again to the meadows along San Antonio Creek and to Ellwood Preserve. The low child to adult ratio allows us to explore the creeks, trails and meadows with the careful attention needed to keep children safe and happy. This low ratio also helps ensure that all children’s voices and ideas are heard which provides critical support to the blossoming language development in this sensory rich environment.
The day usually starts with a walk up to the “Chickadees Meadow” and then a gathering for snacks and an opening circle. Activities vary depending on the weather, season and the energy of the group. Mentors focus on activities that encourage joyful play, meaningful work, team building and harvesting stories that build language skills. Particularly strong “Indicators of Awareness” are likely to include awe & reverence, caring & tending of each other and our natural environment, and common sense.
