About

Here, learning and play come together spontaneously with a heavy emphasis on mindfulness and the natural world. We provide a supportive environment that encourages the child to sprout and grow with the world around them.



We nurture the imagination and create an environment conducive to independent growth through project-based learning and child-led exploration This approach plants the seeds for a lifelong love of learning.

Location

Just like oak trees, children need sunshine and plenty of room to grow. We are located in a private home in Smoke Rise, Georgia and the natural aesthetic of our Discovery Space gives children a place to explore the world around them in a safe and secure environment. Outdoor free play is a large part of our program experience as we incorporate nature and movement into learning whenever possible.

Staff

Beth Denman graduated from the Georgia Tech College of Architecture in 2001 and then pursued a second degree from Southern Polytechnic. After working as a Project Manager for an Architecture firm for several years, she chose to stay at home with her first child. The idea of homeschooling developed naturally from her personal parenting style, and she has continued to teach her own children in her home through kindness, invention, and creativity since 2013. Having successfully coached her son's team to a 2nd place finish in the Global Wonderworks Robotics League Competition, providing group learning experiences was an instinctive next-step when she was invited to teach the child of a friend. Her passion for sharing the learning experience with children has grown to include weekly drop-off science classes and summer camps, where exciting content sparks curiosity and encourages both independent and group interactions through play-based projects.
