************************

The most important lesson a child can learn
is to love learning. 

*******************

"I had the privilege of attending Terry’s self-run home-learner program - Wildwood - as a child and that experience shaped me as a life-long-learner. When I was 10, Terry welcomed me into a world of curiosity and wonder. She encouraged her students to follow our own natural desire to learn and explore and supported our grandiose plans to plant gardens and make films. This support allowed myself, and the other Wildwood students, to turn our playful, far-fetched dreams into a reality and taught me that far-flung ideas aren’t always out of reach. The most important lesson that I learned from Terry was how to find joy in learning."

Our first offering for Fall 2017:


Passport to the World
(Social Studies, Geography)


Tuesdays Sept. 19 to Oct. 24 or Thursdays Sept. 21 – Oct. 26

It’s back!

 In this fun and popular class, kids are issued passports and boarding passes and “fly” to a new country each week, learning about its customs, music, foods, language, costumes, stories and much more. While visiting each country we have a "feast," sing a song, do crafts, write postcards home and take souvenir photos that we put in a keepsake album. This Fall Passport to the World kids will "travel" to:

Japan

China

Germany

Hawaii

Australia

Italy


Outreach, Philanthropy for Kids

(Multiculturalism, Empathy)

Tuesdays Nov. 7 to Dec. 12 or Thursdays Nov. 9 to Dec. 14

Outreach is a very special experience. In these six weeks, children learn about empathy and reaching out to help others. Outreach kids feel empowered to make a difference in the world, learning about helping others near and far away. You will be impressed by just how much one small group of caring kids can accomplish.


WILDWOODVILLE

 Economics and Community for Kids.

Once again we are offering Wildwoodville, the course that is so popular that we have to offer it several times every year! Kids learn about economics as they run their own town and about community as they see the need for civic involvement and cooperation.  

SPRING 2018


Ancient Rome

(History)

Tuesdays April 3 to May 8

OR

Thursdays April 5 to May 10

With stories, films, costumes, foods, group projects, and lots of crafts, we will create a museum of Ancient Rome as we learn about its history, mythology, and importance in our own history. This is another hands-on Wildwood course that will turn your child on to the fascination of history.


Oceanography

(Science)

Tuesdays May 22 to June 26 

OR

 Thursdays May 24 to June 28

More of the Earth is covered in ocean than in land and new discoveries are being made every day.  We will explore the Earth's oceans, the water, marine life, ecosystems, currents, waves, and seafloor geology. What is the impact of the way we treat the ocean? We will end our explorations with a trip to the aquarium and a picnic on the beach.

provide the conditions in which they can learn."

WILDWOODVILLE ON THE ROAD
Do you live too far away for your children

to attend Wildwoodville?
Contact me about bringing Wildwood

to your area as a 5-day camp.

*I offer free enrollment to two children in the same family

in exchange for being my "on the spot" coordinator, helping to
find the venue, contact local families and coordinate helpers. 

 Wildwoodville has traveled to: 

Victoria, Bowen Island, Nanaimo, Mission, Yarrow, and Montreal!


"My son has really enjoyed interacting, co-operating and learning with a diverse
 group of kids, where he can both mentor and be mentored. Terry respects the kids and challenges them to explore and expand their abilities. At Wildwood, the
emphasis is on learning through doing -- forget about worksheets and reading
about the accomplishments of others.  Wildwood kids are involved! 
If 'real' schools were like Wildwood, I wouldn't feel the need to homeschool."
