Ranch School Skills
We will support each child to cultivate a positive, loving relationship with themselves. In partnership with our wise equine teachers we will build confidence, self-awareness, empathy, emotional regulation, self-advocacy and self-compassion.
As part of our herd, your child will learn essential relationship skills and gain leadership experience – just as every horse has a role and responsibility within their herd, we each have a role to play in our families, teams and communities.
Together we will grow the social skills of perspective-taking, boundary setting, collaboration and communication -- verbal and nonverbal.
As active members of a team contributing to a working horse ranch, each child will experience a sense of pride from being part of something greater than themself. We will harvest responsibility, frustration tolerance, patience, problem-solving, perseverance and empowerment through mastery.
Perhaps the most important skill we will be practicing at Ranch School is connecting with the joy of learning. Most people associate learning with formal education but learning can, and should, be a lifelong process that enhances our understanding of the world and improves our quality of life. Through fun, engaging activities and the power of experiential learning (learning by doing) your child will increase their understanding of the world around them, the role they play in it and practice utilizing the tools they need to live a more productive and fulfilling life.
