Montessori kid’s morning at Robinson Ranch

Cuddling the baby goats.

Once a week, one of the Ahwatukee Montessori classes spend a morning at Robinson Ranch learning the value of outdoor work and being around animals!

This gives youth a chance to interact with horses and farm animals, work in teams and complete the usual day to day tasks around the

Ranch. Some of the get-your-hands-dirty duties include feeding, weeding, light building and anything else that needs doing on a typical day at the Ranch.

Here are some photos from their visit last week. Thanks for all the help Montessori!

No matter how much you feed a goat, they ALWAYS want more!
