This new school is the collaborative creation of two vibrant and exciting organizations who hold similar passion for and commitment to outdoor education. This program develops spirit and soul and teaches children to move outward and sideways and not just forward
This school is a safe, nurturing place that encourages individual growth through exploration and creative expression. Learning is made fun and independence is fostered though the focus on awareness of the needs of others and encouragement of individuality. Children are given many opportunities to explore, discover, create, play, exercise, and socialize in a safe, nurturing environment.
The school is small enough that all the educators know all students. It truly feels like a community. All educators are clearly committed to the school and it shows in the way they treat children and families as partners and with respect and care.
