The Hundred Acre School opens its doors to children ages 4 to 8 during school breaks. Join us in our bright, modern classrooms and arts laboratory for a STEM focused vacation week programs that allow children to question like scientists, use technology as a tool, be creative engineers, and think like mathematicians. Heritage Museums & Gardens becomes our second classroom with daily adventures throughout the grounds and to the museums.
Registration for February and April 2018 will open January 1, 2018.

Do you go on field trips?
Our program uses the gardens and galleries of Heritage Museums & Gardens daily so we already feel like we go on a field trip everyday. We don’t go on additional field trips off the grounds of Heritage Museums & Gardens.
My child has an allergy. What is your procedure?
We do not limit what children choose to bring for snack or lunch. If your child has a severe allergy, we are not a good fit.
We follow these procedures for all students to keep them healthy:
Snack and lunch are provided by the family
Students do not share or trade food
Students with food allergies sit at a table with children that do not have those food items in their snack or lunch
Tables are pre-washed with soap/water solution followed by a bleach solution, and students are given a freshly laundered cloth placemat
Placemats are washed after each use
All staff are CPR and First Aid certified
We require a medical release with detailed information about an allergy and what steps would need to be followed if something did happen.
You would provide us with any medications needed to keep him/her safe (i.e. epi-pen).
These medications will be kept in the classroom backpack that is taken with the class anytime they leave the school.
The Heritage Security Team is also trained to respond to emergencies and will be able to assist staff with emergencies as needed.
Where is the school located at Heritage? Do I need to walk from the main entrance of Heritage to the school?
The school has its own entrance and parking lot so it is very convenient for drop off and pick up.
When you arrive at Heritage Museums & Gardens, do not turn into the main parking lot.
Continue driving forward and bear to the left at the fork onto a town owned dirt road.
Take your 2nd paved left into the school’s parking lot. You will see a sign for the school at the entrance.
Please note – You might feel like you are on the dirt road for a while. Here are some landmarks to know you are going the right way.
You will drive past The Adventure Park at Heritage (on the right)
You will drive past the Heritage Maintenance Building (on the right)
