We believe that a healthy child is a more confident child and does better academically, socially, and physically. It is important that we give our children good nutrition in order for their brain, body, and immune system to develop properly. GreenWood will support local farmers and provide our students fresh food, organic as is possible. There will be no vending machines on site, and birthdays will be celebrated with song and dance not processed treats from the grocery store.
Our children live in a busy world of video games, pressure from school and peers, sports, and extra-curricular activities—our kids are more stressed than we think. At GreenWood, students will start their day with a mindful class meeting called Crew—setting intention for a successful day of growth, kindness and patience. Teachers will begin class activities with mindfulness and end with reflection before the next transition.
Regular exercise improves coordination, balance, strengthens bones and muscles, and improves overall health. In addition to the physical benefits of exercise, exercising also promotes social skills. We look forward to happier, healthier kids!
