Both Homeschool Enrichment days at Mountain Sage offer mixed age learning environments, and are led by seasoned Waldorf teacher Mrs. Rosemary Vermouth. Enrollment in our Homeschool Enrichment program requires a year long commitment of weekly attendance. Our homeschool enrichment days offers the best of our arts-integrated program, with our expert staff leading children through a wide variety of experiences (see schedules below).
The Enrichment Main Lesson includes singing, recitations, an artistic activity and a story. The framework for our stories evolves out of the rich festival life at MSCS and the Waldorf curriculum. Activities include watercolor painting, drawing, crafts, and modeling. We also enjoy the beauty of nearby natural areas near the Poudre River with monthly nature walks. A rich social experience develops each day when the class meets and a sense of belonging to the larger Mountain Sage Community. Our homeschooling students and families attend and participate in all elements of Mountain Sage Community School festival life, as well. We are thrilled to offer such a incredible, free opportunity to the homeschooling families of our community!
