We Believe

CHILD LED

A child led environment is an integral part of building confident, self-directed students.

IMMERSED IN PLAY

Children learn best when immersed in play and offered a variety of experiences that are inspired by their interests.

EXPERIENCE NATURE

Extensive nature experiences assist in the foundational whole body development required for a child’s ability to focus for long periods of time and process knowledge–climbing, running, navigating uneven surfaces, and spinning develop a healthy proprioceptive system.

TAKE RISKS

Encouraging appropriate risk-taking teaches a child to follow their instinct and trust in their own decisions and respecting a child’s ability to do so creates a strong relationship between teacher and student.

CULTIVATE JOY

Joy in a child’s school experiences leads to confident, content, and engaged students.

SHARE KNOWLEDGE

Parents and educators thrive when they come together to discuss topics, share ideas, and develop knowledge important to the growth of their student and child.
