VINS Homeschool Programs

VINS is excited to offer Homeschool Programming for the 2020/2021 Academic Year.  

We want to support you in your homeschooling efforts by inviting you to our regularly scheduled homeschool programs. Designed by our highly qualified Science Educators, these programs will enhance your homeschoolers’ learning experience this year.  Our program includes both in-person and virtual lessons.

Mark the days in your calendar and be sure to build these programs into your curriculum. Your homeschoolers will be immersed in science and place-based education during our dynamic, fun-filled lessons!

Due to popular demand, we are launching several Homeschool Days throughout the year.  Anyone can sign up for these days, whether you participate in our regular series, are on one of our waitlists, or you live at a distance.  Join us for science, nature, and fun! Learn more.

  • Participants will be required to complete a health pre-screening prior to arriving at the VINS Nature Center before each lesson.
  • Participants are required to wear masks, maintain social distance and wash hands prior to the start of the lesson. 
  • All materials are disinfected before and after each lesson.

"This was an exceptional science series. The instructor was always very willing to go above and beyond to answer all questions from students and parents. The instructor also provided further websites, books, and other instructional materials and resources whenever students or parents wanted to dive deeper into the topics. The instructor was excellent at providing a variety of hands-on grade-level activities during each lesson to create engagement and further intellectual thinking. I would highly recommend this program to any interested parent. "
