Roots Exploration School

Roots Exploration School seeks to nurture the inherent creativity and curiosity of children through programs that are rooted in nature and honor the wholeness of each child.

Nestled on a five-acre farm in Bend, Oregon, we create the space where children learn how to listen to and express themselves while living in symbiotic relationship with each other and the earth.

We serve children ages six months to five years, inspiring and empowering them to become joyful, life-long learners.

At Roots Exploration School, we believe that children are best set up for success in an environment rooted in the following values:
Heart-centered teaching & learning
Whole food
Play-based & emergent curricula


Summer programming will run for six weeks, from June 17th until July 26th.

We will meet Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays from  8:30 AM to 12:30 PM.

Included in this program is a low student-to-teacher ratio (5:1), one healthy, organic snack and lunch, and plenty of time to explore.

Fall programming will begin September 3rd. Enrollment will open this spring. Visit the Roots website to learn more.
