Community

We regularly take our kids out on outings. The Bay area’s favorable year round weather allows us to venture out into our Neighborhood where we learn about living in our community. Depending on distance, we often use our 6 child stroller (La Rana) or plan a walking or bus trip.

 

Here are some examples of local field trips:

 

Temescal Creek Park or Stanford Park

Farmer's market

Local Galleries

The Fire Station (safety)

The  Public Library (story time)

Pixar or city hall tour          

Cooking workshop at Local Restaurant (our kids once made bread at Arizmendi Bakery)

Local streams to investigate ecosystems

Local architecture to investigate spaces

Local businesses like post office, Amtrak, bike shop, hair shops &  places that can spark imaginative dramatic play.

Bigger trips have included Lawrence Hall of science, Botanical garden, Fairyland, etc...

 

We are always looking for activities for our kids, feel free to emails us if you have a great suggestion.
