"I have seen my very reserved child open up, make a good friend, and she now warms up to new people more easily. Best of all, she has a great time, both indoors and outdoors! There are very fun and creative projects that she enjoys every week." ~An Ashlar Parent
"My child's OT and speech therapist are both impressed by the progress my child has made since starting at Ashlar. They recommend enrolling for as long as we can!" ~An Ashlar Parent
"It’s an absolute pleasure to watch these Questers learn and grow in the studio and in nature in ways they don't typically get to in a traditional school setting. These things aren’t taught any other way except doing, and it’s quite magical for me to witness these children out in nature learning from the world in such a natural way. As an educator, I have seen it all and this is a blessing and gift for these children to be outside learning with their whole selves." ~Melissa Tomlinson, Ashlar Mentor
"Chondra Norman is a tender visionary who upholds the educational rights of all children and values that each child comes bearing a creative purpose that must be fostered and protected, by all means necessary. Ashlar's programs are full of respect, integrity, and the belief that all young children are capable and competent citizens and community members." ~Sarah Schumacher, Local Early Childhood Educator and Community Program Builder
