“Children see magic because they look for it.”- Christopher Moore.
Every day is magical at Little School—children are encouraged to gaze, touch and listen with all their senses, to find the magic in every experience. I invite you to come in for a tour and experience this firsthand!

A Child-Focused Environment
Our Little School is all about exploration. An environment that inspires wonder, play, dance, singing, creating, sharing stories, investigating nature, and sharing meals and laughter with friends. Our Reggio-Emilia-inspired approach is centered around individuality and collaboration—students learn to discover themselves and engage with their community.
Our community-centered culture blends with contemporary responsive teaching practices. Our school is a place that encourages discovery, problem solving, social interaction, and collaboration between children, parents, and teachers.
In our Little School, classrooms, plants, mirrors, natural elements, and light set the tone in each space. We challenge ourselves to stretch our understanding of young children and how they view the world. And we pay attention—you may notice teachers taking notes as their students draw, or paint, or talk, data which in turn informs instruction. Children’s work may be in many stages of completion because we understand that children need to revisit projects and think deeply about the process. We also believe that a child’s work holds theories that explain their interpretations of events.
In Early Childhood our Studio space is a haven for small group creative work, with no more than eight children in the Studio at one time. Using materials from the natural world like paint, clay, shells, leaves, feathers, and recycled materials, children create their own masterpieces and are able to revisit projects often. Collaborative works, such as sculpture, mobiles, and collage, are cornerstones of the environment.
