Did we mention that Fire Keepers have a lot of FUN?!?!

Through passions- and inquiry-based learning, storytelling, engaging in nature awareness games and creative play, practicing earth skills, and embarking on wild wanderings, Fire Keepers gain a deeper connection to the world of plants, mammals, birds, animal tracking, and survival skills. Throughout the school year, students will also deepen their relationship with their community and will cultivate the unique gifts and talents that they bring to the world as individuals.

>>> School has started but a few spaces remain --

If your child attends public school and cannot commit to our weekly program on Wednesdays, be sure to check out our Owl Eyes After-school Program, which meets on Thursday afternoons from 1:45-4:15 PM at Fairhaven Park. Owl Eyes is a great after-school option for the early release which occurs each Thursday at all Bellingham public schools!
