At Auttie World, children are viewed as unique and gifted individuals. We feel each child’s development is best supported through an emergent & creative Holistic curriculum. Our Summer Holistic Art sessions is full of craft materials and garden activities, to encourage imagination. Each instructor helps to promote a positive self-image by encouraging the children to try new activities & challenges.
Researchers find activities like gardening, horticulture, holistic (body, mind, and spirit) can improve mental health and contribute to a healthy weight. The increased physical activity reduces stress, and increases happiness. You also build better eating habits for your entire family and generations to come, when grow your own vegetables. With benefits like this, why are we not seeing more adults and children interested in gardening? For starters, we have to go back and begin with the young. Cultivating children’s interest in gardening, art, and the environment at a very young age, shows that as adults they continue to artwork, be supporters of sustainability and the "Garden" or "Green Earth" thinker. Children’s gardens should be a place of fun and inhibition so they can be free to explore and learn as they grow-up.

Auttie World's Summer Holistic Art Campers will have an afternoon filled with Art, Games, food, drinks, and a mini ceremony to acknowledge their participation.
This showcase is FREE open to the public. It is a chance for the community to come by and learn more about the work that the children have done all summer long, and is one that bridges the gaps of the Auttieworld and the Neurotypical World. We encourage the community to come prepared to purchase the artwork and meet with the professional Artist "Big Buddies" from our community, that work to inspire our campers along their ARTISTIC Journey!

Our "BOOK CLUB" welcomes friends and parents to stop by and participate. The group meets during August and September an hour to build reading skills. This program will be interactive (working with books of their own choice), while learning social interactive skills.
The Book Club is all about children that love to read (including some who cannot read), love books for the same reasons most people do...ADVENTURE! Being transported to different worlds, cultures, etc., where they meet interesting characters and learn about exciting new things. Taking that journey with a group of "Like Minded" friends makes it even more delightful and fun!
