The afternoon program at RHP is a sensory rich, materials based program that will expose children to the typical routines of school, and provide a gentle and stimulating introduction to independent social exploration.  Each week, children and their caregivers, guided by an RHP teacher, will sing, read, eat, and explore together. Our Thursday afternoon sessions will begin with a welcome song and a story, carefully selected to expose the children to ideas and concepts that might come up during our planned exploration. The bulk of our afternoon will be devoted to the deep exploration of carefully curated materials (including clay, water, paint, dirt, sand, light and shadow and recycled items). Each week will offer a new experience, sometimes in RHP's beautiful classrooms, other weeks at one of our neighboring community gardens.
