Hi! I’m Sarah Seyfred, and I’m leading the Saplings group!

I am a mother of 5, and I have been homeschooling since 2018.

Before staying home full time with our crew, I worked as a registered nurse in the ER, a preschool teacher at a Reggio Emelia school, and my husband and I also started and operated our own mobile wood-fired pizza catering business for many years.

We are pretty relaxed homeschoolers — we love art and nature, we follow our children’s lead as much as possible, and we believe that children learn best when they have control over what they are doing and the freedom to explore at their own pace.

I practice gentle, non-punitive parenting and aim to guide your children through conflict with compassion and empathy. I believe all people are worthy of respect, and our group will always be an inclusive one where all are welcome.

My oldest, (son, born 4/2008), started at a public magnet high school in the fall of 2022 (big change from his many years at home!). The younger childen (daugther, 5/2013; daughter, 8/2014; son, 6/2017; and son, 3/2019) are all attending our Saplings group.
