Please Note that the Doves Academy is not yet available. It is part of our "BIG VISION" for Exodus.
Once we grow this will hopefully be part of what we offer. Until then, we are looking for a space to accommodate this vision and the Leadership committed to carrying it out beautifully. Please contact us if you'd like to be a part of Exodus by helping to bring the Doves Academy to fruition.
At the Resource Center, we strive to provide opportunities to all families.
It is this passion that lead us to start the Doves Co-op.
Doves allows parents of young children the opportunity to participate and benefit from the Resource Center before they even begin their school journey.
There are lots of opportunities at the Resource Center for young families!
DOVES ACADEMY- Co-Op Style
The Doves Co-op is for families with children 0-6 years old, with a primary focus on pre-school and kindergarten. As a cooperative, parents are expected to be involved during co-op day; all classes are parent-taught and the program is parent-led! Each participating parent either teaches or helps in a class. There are also opportunities to help plan field trips, help with chapel and more!
The Doves class list changes each session as parents come up with new and creative classes to teach. Each session is filled with all kinds of fun classes! Examples may include:
ABC, 123 (ages 3-4)
PE Games (ages 5-7)
Indoor Play Park (ages 2-3)
Exploring Physics (ages 7-10)
Cooking with Kids (ages 5-7)
Cultures Around the World (ages 5-6)
Sensory Play (ages 2-3)
Those are only a few of the many wonderful classes taught by parents in Doves!
The Doves Co-op will meet once a week in the mornings. Here is a sample of the co-op schedule:
10:00 // Family Style Chapel
10:20 // Block A (first class)
11:00 // Snack
11:10 // Block B (second class)
11:50 // Clean-up, pick-up
