A small, warm, community-driven school focused on changing the lives of children, families and communities. We believe in the wonder of each child, providing the structures and space that kids need in order to learn and grow. We see each child not only for who they are but also for the potential they have, formulating, every day, the journey that will lead them to success.
We are a place where children can breathe out, where they find themselves absorbed in learning without intending to, where they play and learn because that is what children do, where they expand the potential they have every day.
We strive to develop children who love challenges, who stand up to be counted, who find wonder and beauty in life both at school and outside of it.
We bring the world inside the classroom in one instant and in another, we go out to meet it. Our children are interesting and insightful, they are empathetic and social, they are present and accounted for. Our children are connected to the world that they live in, from local to global.
We know the value of skills for the 21st century, we use the latest research to inform and inspire us as we teach and build the kids of tomorrow.
We believe in • the child’s ability to rewire their thinking and overcome barriers. • nurturing independent and flexible thinking that inspires happy, resilient, empathetic people. • turning the classroom away from lectures and into a conversation with a respect for divergent and connected thinking. • that children should experience their learning in a real and relevant way so that they find their own ‘a-ha’ moments. • the process of learning as well as the product of it, how we get there is equally important. • nurturing a shift towards children taking responsibility for their own learning. • that children are motivated by their own questions. • that children need many moments during the day to exercise, integrate the mind and body and enjoy the feeling of motion. • that the child will thrive when family and school connect and engage on the journey.
