The Village School provides a warm, safe, supportive, nurturing garden for children to grow and become themselves. Teachers are facilitators, gardeners and role models
Children are learning friendship making, fine and large motor skills, beginning reading and handwriting, hands-on math with manipulatives, and growing imagination and creativity through play, all rooted in daily experience in nature. Wonder is alive and thriving.
Children begin to solidify skills and move freely between the world of imagination and the real world around them. Learning sparks their interest, and their interest guides the direction and depth of their learning. Play and work are indistinguishable.
Children begin to separate the imaginary world from the world of reality. They value both and transition easily from one to another. Reading is opening big doors to the larger world outside their home and classroom. They take on a yearlong study, immersing deeply in exploration.
Taking on an expansive Theme Study for the whole year, such as the Middle Ages or the American Frontier West, children explore the past and present and make connections to their daily lives. Self expression takes many forms, such as writing, painting and creating an original play together.
The nature-based Village School education focuses on in-depth hands-on academic studies together with kindness and attention to the individual student.
The Village School helps children develop their talents, celebrates their uniqueness, and champions cooperative learning. The school’s structure facilitates each student becoming responsibly independent.
