Free to be a Child

now accepting applications for 3-6 year-olds

a Reggio-inspired, home-based early childhood program

At Free to be a Child,

your child will spend their days out in nature and in the surrounding community,

or in our cozy sun-filled family room, kitchen, and studio;

learning in relationship with others

through open-ended play and a rich curriculum based on their own interests.

Free to be a Child is run by Lise McGuinness, a well-respected early childhood teacher and consultant who has been teaching young children in public and private settings for 20 years.

Free to be a Child is open Monday through Thursday from 8:00am to 4:30pm.

Free to be a Child
provides healthful vegetarian lunches and snacks, using organic and local food.

If your child is 4 or more years old, and is, or will be, home schooled, I am especially interested in hearing from you. As my 4-year-old daughter approaches school age, I am seeking peers from like-minded families to join our homeschooling journey. I am thrilled at this opportunity to explore Reggio-inspired philosophies with older children. Whether you need time for your own work, or are wanting group learning opportunities for your child, Free to be a Child may be the answer.
