A little dirt does a body good! Getting dirty strengthens our immune system, is good for our heart and skin and improves our mental health.

Don't worry... your children are 100% washable. Just towel dry off afterwards. 😂

In a world filled with complexity, it’s easy to forget the magic of holding something in our hands. Our hands hold the power to create, connect, and communicate.

There’s a special connection that happens when we truly feel what we hold. It’s a reminder to be present in the moment, to savor the simple things and to appreciate the tangible things that make life beautiful. Sometimes, the smallest things have the greatest impact.

Be grateful for the little treasures you hold in your hands today!

There is no such thing as bad weather. Even though it was a rainy morning, our Creative Explorations class spent most of their morning outside exploring our forest area. The children took advantage of the rain to get water for our mud kitchen. The students also explored leaves, chalk on wet tree stumps, raking and did so much more. They also worked together to see how many friends could fit under an umbrella.


Mighty Roots Academy still has a few positions available on our Creative Options teaching team for Wednesdays. Full-day and half-day options including the following courses: Vocal Coach for Musical Theater, Animal Exploration, Team Sports, Gardening, Outdoor Skills, and Logic Learning Games.

Possiable half-day Monday positions available as our Discovery Days program expands.

Find out more under out Employment Tab on the wesbsite. See our full course descriptions and policies and procedures under the Creative Options program tab.

Our photography students have been studying the world of macro photography. They have created some amazing work. Macro photography is not easy and takes a lot of practice and patience. You have to slow down and really think about all aspects of photography while shooting macro.
