Flying Squads are a true social growth opportunity for tweens and teens! It is incredible to see how quickly young people develop friendships, confidence, communication skills, and calm when they work together to make decisions and explore our community. Unlike school field trips, Flying Squads do not have a destination determined by adults. Following the Montessori practice of "Going Out," they instead decide together where to go and how to spend their time together.
Flying Squads include young people ages 11-14 with all kinds of interests. Right now, our group is interested in sports, nature, art, music, video games, literature, pop culture and much more. We're delighted to see how well Flying Squads groups work together and celebrate their diversity!
Our Adult Guides, Ms. Dalton Onorato and Ms. Victoria Cramer, are certified NC, special education, and Montessori teachers who provide transportation, supervision, support, and planning. All DLC staff also complete NC background checks and Red Cross First Aid Certification.
