The Children's School
For meaningful learning, children need to be known and understood by their teachers. Our teachers are masters at creating a warm, orderly, and stimulating environment that invites students to discover their interests and satiates their curiosity, creative imagination, and hunger to learn. In our classrooms, students build foundational skills as they delight in music and art, movement and dance, and converse in basic Spanish. Respecting that the early years are the most important in a child’s educational journey, at The Children’s School we are passionate about providing the gift of a good beginning and instill a lifelong love of learning. We invite you for a tour to learn first-hand how our skilled staff and unique pedagogical philosophy serve the needs of the individual child, ages 3 to 8.

Every day we strive to help students discover their strengths and passions as they learn how to make their own meaning of the complicated world in which we live. Our students form a community. They learn to lead and follow. They clean and maintain the campus together, live by an honor code, and learn how to be “gentle, generous, truthful, kind and brave."
Our strictest requirement for students is that they think about the person that they want to be, and show us that person every day. When you think about it, what else is there?
