“Restore balance. Most kids have technology, school and extracurricular activities covered. It’s time to add a pinch of adventure, a sprinkle of sunshine and a big handful of outdoor play.”
Penny Whitehouse


Morning Program

We encourage students to start mornings attentively with Yoga, stretches, and mindful moments. Giving children the opportunity to grow their skills in self-regulation, self-direction, and self-reflection, leading to the development of physical, social, emotional and intellectual wellbeing.

SCHEDULE: Students can be dropped off as early as 6:30 AM or 7:00 AM. They may enjoy their packed breakfast at our picnic tables ‘in the park’ or participate in Mindful Mornings. Staff will bring the students to the bus stop for Monticello Central School district at 809 Creamery Rd. on time each day.

Afternoon Program

After 6 hours of traditional school, we believe kids deserve a brain break and an outlet for their energies. The Woods at Valley Daycare was created to provide youth with the opportunity to spend more time outdoors. Valley Woods aims to inspire young learners to gain a better connection to themselves, each other, and the world around them through child-directed play-based learning.

SCHEDULE: Students are met at the bus stop at 809 Creamery Rd. for the Monticello Central School District Bus. After 30 minutes of energy burning activity, we will enjoy our packed snacks, and then spend the next 30-45 minutes working on homework and study. The rest of the afternoon will be spent enjoying nature until pick up.
