Earthworms Outdoor School is an all-outdoor program for children ages 4-7.  Children learn about local flora and fauna, climate, engineering, they build social and emotional skills, confidence, curiosity, and creativity, and they develop an affection for their environment and community. The program runs Tuesday-Friday from 8:30 am - 12:30 pm at the PCEI Nature Center. Tuition is based on how many days per week a family chooses to enroll their child. There are options for 1-4 days per week. If a child is enrolled 4 days per week the tuition is $528 per month (all families are invited to apply for sliding scale tuition which is based on income and family size.) We are currently full and accepting applications for our waitlist.

"My journey with Palouse Roots began at the first gathering of parents, children (including my then 1-year-old Josephine), and teachers in the yurt at the old farmhouse. Darci’s vision resonated with some of my dearest aspirations and I knew right away that I wanted to be connected. Since then I have become increasingly involved and inspired to share my time and skills. My work experience is a mix of childcare, environmental ecology, and nonprofit leadership. I am most naturally drawn to working with children and have been a babysitter, nanny, camp counselor, nature center program leader, and home daycare provider.
