Small group tutoring sessions provide your learner with the individualized attention they deserve while improving collaborative and social skills through regular meetups.
Our nature-inspired tutoring welcomes learners of all abilities to receive instruction, support, and opportunities for growth in a safe and accepting environment.
Our Sensory Farm's
We are proud to share our newest program, We Play! Unique Tutoring for Unique Learners! An individualized, inclusive, language-arts based tutoring program for school age learners with all abilities. The goal of this nature-inspired, outdoor learning experience is to provide specialized instruction, support, and opportunities for academic, social, and emotional growth in a safe, accepting environment. All instruction will be provided by Shannon Wells, special education teacher, special needs mom, and founder of Our Sensory Farm.
Small group tutoring sessions will primarily be held at Our Sensory Farm in southern Chesapeake, VA; however, several indoor locations around Hampton Roads will also be available as safe learning spaces when needed due to time of year and inclement weather. We Play's flexible scheduling aims to meet the needs of all families with tutoring sessions available on select weekday mornings, afternoons, and evenings, as well as morning and afternoon sessions on select Saturdays and Sundays. In addition to our regular tutoring sessions, you can also register your learner(s) for Social Club Meetups and Field Trips! We Play program fees start at $42 an hour. Bonus sessions and sibling discounts are available.
Our goal is to become a valuable part of your education team; therefore, we would love to collaborate with teachers, coaches, and related service providers. In order to meet the needs of all learners and their families, both independent and chaperoned tutoring sessions will be available. Please note that all scheduled field trips will require each learner to have a caregiver in attendance as they are chaperoned events.
We believe in the importance of creating a safe, accepting space for learners where patience, kindness, and caring are prioritized. We also believe in our ability to make a difference in the lives of others. We are here to answer any questions you may have and look forward to hearing from you soon!

WHAT THEY'RE SAYING ABOUT US
"Had so much fun visiting my new neighbors at Our Sensory Farm today! Small farmer, innovator and value creator Shannon is hard at work creating inclusive sensory, social, and play experiences for children of all abilities. She is a powerhouse of ideas, creativity and cordiality! I feel blessed to be her neighbor and watch her vision come to life. It makes my heart happy to know she is partnering with schools without outdoor play spaces and sharing the wide open spaces of Southern Chesapeake with those kiddos. Shannon is adorable, but I absolutely fell in love with Piggy. I can’t wait till watermelon comes in season so I can take him one!"
