We were so happy to find Talking Stick! It's a wonderful, warm, welcoming community where kids can learn and develop all kinds of skills creatively and collaboratively. My son has been full of new energy since we started at Talking Stick. And I'm thrilled that they spend so much time outside!
Thanks for creating such a wonderful community!
Everything about Talking Stick makes my heart happy. It's precisely what childhood, and learning, should be. I truly can't imagine homeschooling without it.
My son enjoys the freedom of the natural surroundings with his friends at Talking Stick.
Rowan just said to me yesterday that he wishes that TS ran all year round. Talking Stick is the base of our tribe, our homeschooling community. It's where we come to for friends and support. I love all the ways of life, the ideas, the new things they are exposed to at TS. We've been at Talking Stick for a long time, it's the only thing we all have always wanted to keep doing year after year.
My kids have been looking for their homeschooling tribe, and Talking Stick is it!
Dropping off my daughter today it was such a good feeling. There were a bunch of kids running around playing with sticks. They were making some plan near the trees. A game. It looked so fun. It looked like childhood should be--a group of kids about to get dirty outside, hatching fun kid plans. Also I love Katie and the teachers at Talking Stick: I trust them. I trust that they're going to keep my kid safe, and I trust if my kid is scared or hurt or going through something hard at TS that they will be there with her in a real, caring way.
On a warm spring day, My kids' friends come home from school with their enormous backpacks stuffed full of homework. My kids come home from Talking Stick with grass stains on their clothes, leaves, and twigs in their hair, and their clothes smelling like fresh air and sunshine.
