What is The Whole Child?
The mission of The Whole Child is to provide children with stimulating nature-centered opportunities to encourage artistic self-expression, independent problem solving, and a never-ending curiosity towards life.
Children will freely explore their natural world, therefore inviting new experiences every day and allowing the child to become a leader on their own learning path. Through these experiences, children will learn compassion not only towards their friends, but also towards the Earth and themselves.
The Whole Child encompasses all aspects of a child’s well-being – mind, body, heart, and soul.
Inspired by Reggio, Steiner, and Warden philosophies, children will spend a majority of their time outdoors in Earth’s classroom. Our daily rhythm will include time for creative play, loose parts invitations, yoga, stories, art discovery, and more. Our commitment in viewing children as competent and capable learners promotes a comfortable and encouraging atmosphere where children can recognize and reach their full potential.
“It is vital that when educating our children’s brains that we do not neglect to educate their hearts.”
