Our Program Educators
Hello! I’m Ruth. I have worked with children for more than 20 years, initially, as a teacher in my family day care program and, currently, as a Mental Health Clinician with children and families in the metrowest community. I embrace the notion that children are instinctively curious and learn through their interactions with their world. When children use all five senses and teachers and caregivers are there to foster curiosity with positive and affirming support, children will flourish in their ability to explore, enjoy learning, and grow. I am strongly committed to the importance of social and emotional learning; at Night Owl Farm, children will be encouraged to learn about their own needs and the needs of their peers through guided, safe instruction that focuses on children's natural curiosity about their own needs, the needs of their peers and the animals, and the gifts that the land and earth give us. I strongly support the values of indigenous people's respect for the land, for self, and for others and incorporate these values into everyday learning and growth for myself and for others I work with. I am excited for the opportunity to work with children at the farm and to share the joy of exploring and learning about the natural gifts the farm has to offer!
