Our Curriculum

Our curriculum constantly evolves to meet the needs of our students. It can be described as:

Hands-On, Child-Lead, Experiential, Emergent, Play-Based, Nature-Based, Individualized and Holistic.

Specifically, we cater to each child's learning style, passions, interests, personality, developmental readiness, and even mood to determine our course on any given day. Although the children may not detect it, we work deliberately to nurture the 7 areas of intelligence listed below.

The Whole Child

I am a whole child. There is more to me than what academic test scores may tell you. I have a variety of intelligences, and my own unique combination of skills and attributes is what makes me, me. Nurture my strengths and support my struggles. What am I ready for? How can I challenge myself? Help me to grow confidently in the person I am, ready to take the path that is just right for me.
