Our work also provides children with opportunities to make meaningful connections between their classroom, home experiences, and the work of adults.

Our Vision

We understand the importance of different learning styles and creating a variety of opportunities for children to learn from adults and for adults to learn from children. We exercise the use of praxis in all of our teaching and learning.

 

Adult Involvement

We foster a community where children see adults engaged in the teaching, practicing, and learning of social change, social justice, and leadership, and where adults see the early development of social change, social justice, and leadership as they observe and participate in the children's learning processes.

Accessible Learning Spaces

We create developmentally, racially, and economically accessible educational settings and practices that empower learners to find their own voices and to see themselves and others as unique and complex individuals influenced by the social and political  contexts of their experiences.
