After School

The school provides an after school program from 3:00–6:00 p.m. for 3-10 year olds, and 3:00-5:30 p.m. for toddlers. The after school program includes sports, arts and crafts, study hall, and outdoor recreational play. Extra fee is required.

Intergenerational Programs

Children in the 1st/2nd grade class make monthly visits to a local nursing home facility, integrating this experience into their daily lives. This experience promotes a greater sense of community with others outside of the school and encourages children to learn to honor their elders.

The summer program offers a series of concentrated courses of study, varying in length from one to two weeks and includes academic enrichment, arts and crafts, drama and theater, science, cooking, and various content studies. Special classes such as Yoga, Music and Creative Movement (P.E.) are offered throughout the summer.

Love and Logic Workshops

Awakening Seed offers free Love and Logic parenting workshops to all Seed parents.  Workshops are offered twice a year with times and dates varying.  The workshops are open to non-Seed families at a minimal cost.  For more information about the Awakening Seed Love and Logic trainings, go to Love and Logic 14.

Art Masterpiece

Art Masterpiece is an opportunity for students to take a deeper look at the works of famous artists throughout history.  Five times a year parents sign up to present a brief lesson about different artists to a designated class. Posters and resources are available to teach about the artists and a follow-up art activity is offered.  The results are impressive. This is an excellent way for parents to fulfill their volunteer hour requirements.  For more information check out the flyer for Art Masterpiece.

Awakening Seed offers yoga instruction to students of all ages through the P. E. program. Children have their own mats and playfully learn to develop balance, concentration, and spatial awareness through their yoga practice. In addition to gaining self-confidence, physical strength and flexibility, they learn many valuable techniques for calming their minds and bodies, which enables them to be happier and healthier children.
