Welcome To
Tiny Farmers Academy!

A Farm-Based Childhood Experience

ABOUT
Tiny Farmers Academy offers a high quality, farm-enriched setting for children of all ages.

Our Tiny Farmers Country Club Membership offers children with exposure to farm life: such as gardening, and farm animal play!

Our enrichment curriculum is a multilogical approach to learning, and combines a set of diverse childhood educational theories that include: the Montessori Method, the Waldorf Philosophy, and the Reggio-Emilia Approach.

We believe that kids learn best when they can have fun, and feel safe to discover. We encourage growth through “doing,” and proudly promote agricultural, and academic opportunities for our little learners to thrive.
