What Makes Us Different?
We believe children have the right to play, dream and be collaborators in their learning.
We treat all children, even the youngest infants, as unique intelligent human beings who are capable of participating in life by initiating activity and receiving and returning our efforts to communicate with them.
While in our care, your child will…
- be seen, heard and respected
- co-create their own wonder-based learning experience
- spend ample time in nature
- develop life skills such as cleaning up, gardening, hand washing and preparing food
- eat pure whole-food meals and snacks prepared with love
- engage their imagination through loose-parts creative play
- be guided as they explore what they’re most curious about and want to learn and given uninterrupted “work time” for their explorations and discoveries
We do this by following the Magda Gerber’s Educaring™ approach and using a child led developmentally appropriate teaching method called Wonder Based Education™ which was developed by Sally Haughey.
