Thickets is a place-based learning community for self-directed young people ages 5 – 8 in Montpelier, Vermont. Each day evolves differently and is created collectively as we explore the forests, parks and city.
Thickets celebrates emergent, self-directed learning and nurtures children’s social-emotional growth by cultivating a culture of empathy and awareness. As the children build relationships with the land, with each other and with the community, they learn how to balance freedom with responsibility and begin the life-long process of knowing themselves as learners and as people.
We run Monday – Wednesday, 8:30 – 3:30. One, two or three-day option.
