The Children's Farm has been RETIRED, but Adventure Weekend continues!
We are Ronda and Alan, a husband and wife team who own and operate the Adventure Weekend program in Grass Valley, CA. The program typically occurs one weekend a month, and serves about a dozen preschool through school age children. We are both seasoned educators with lots of credentials and experience in early childhood and school-age settings.
Our ongoing goal is to create the healthiest environment and finest children's program we can imagine for the holistic development and socialization of children as they mature from infancy through childhood. Our mixed-age social format is based on the assumption that humankind evolved within the context of village-style social groupings, and that children are hard-wired to learn, express themselves and thrive within this kind of natural child-raising social habitat.
At Adventure Weekend the kids are happily engaged with the rich variety of age-less activities within the center of a vibrant community. We feel blessed with an exceptionally enlightened group of parents who are so committed to socializing their children in a community that acknowledges them and encourages them for the unique beings they are.
