In the spring of 2014 Rising Song purchased a beautiful half-acre piece of property. Developing the evolving outdoor playscape has been hard and rewarding work and has led to:
An annual vegetable garden, tons of pickable perineal flowers, 100's of berries plants, 30 fruit trees, a giant sandbox (with plenty of garden tools, wheelbarrows, and a water-catchment barrel), tree swings, natural climbing structures, revolving forts (and loose parts to make them), stump play (including a hammering station), and plenty of room to run!
The inside classroom has a beautiful open floor plan with vaulted ceilings, lots of light and natural play materials.
Rebecca Jones, Owner, Director, Teacher
My motivation to teach comes from my deep and developing connection to nature, evolving communication and conflict resolution skills, and expression of creativity as an artist. After 15 years of practice, I have a clear sense of this work being my right livelihood.
I feel daily gratitude from being a witness and guide to children as they experience the world with openness and wonder, and am inspired to share my love of song, movement, laughter, stories, plants, and artistic expression. At the center of my work, I hold the intention to make each child feel truly seen and special.
I am a student of meditation and psychic energy reading, which I find tremendously helpful in supporting, grounding and sustaining myself in this work with children. In my spare time I’m a homesteader, avid gardener, experimental cook, amateur herbalist, solo kitchen dancer, and aspiring mermaid.
