“GOING OUT” FIELD TRIPS
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
As Students Pursue Greater Depth in Their Work, They Must Enter the “Go Out” to Gather Additional Information

“When the child goes out, it is the world itself that offers itself to him. Let us take the child out to show him real things instead of making objects which represent ideas and closing them in cupboards.” – Maria Montessori

Field Trips

We are dedicated to sharing the culture of our city with the children. The Dallas/Fort Worth area has a wealth of cultural experiences for the kindergarten and elementary students. Parents chaperones love going as well!

Alden children go to plays and musicals at such places as the Dallas Theatre Center, Casa Mañana, local universities, and other venues that provide child friendly shows.

The Dallas and Fort Worth Symphonies put on educational productions for the children. The massive organ at the Meyerson is always a favorite!

The children enjoy going to places that have lots of animals. We always enjoy the zoos as well as nature preserves, wildlife sanctuaries, and aquariums.

Science, history and art museums are always a big hit. You can learn so much and experience many hands-on exhibits.

For the younger children who don’t go out for field trips, we bring the trips to them! Traveling zoos, plays, singers, storytellers and artists bring educational excitement to the school.

Each year brings different experiences for the children as there are endless opportunities, programs, and adventures to be had in this great and vast city.
