Field Trips | Children's House
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, some field trips will be suspended for the 2021-2022 school year.
Education is a natural process carried out by the child and is not acquired by listening to words, but by experiences in the environment. - Maria Montessori
Students of all ages experience opportunities outside of the classroom as a means of not only broadening the mind and spirit, but as an opportunity to practice grace and courtesy in the larger world. Teachers guide students to extend what is learned in the classroom to a real-world setting. Travel experiences, whether local or abroad, are carefully planned and designed for the developmental needs of the learner at each age group.
Children’s House Kindergarten and older
Once a student reaches Children’s House Kindergarten, occasional field trips occur as a part of the curriculum. Local field trips help deepen student learning by making concepts more relevant and are often planned at the end of a unit of study to help them engage with the content in a hands-on way. With the rich variety of resources in the Triangle area, field trip destinations include museums, planetariums, parks, and area businesses. Parents may be invited to volunteer as chaperones.
