Our school celebrates the uniqueness of each individual child and employs a play-based philosophy that recognizes the developmental levels of the different age groups we serve.
Outside of school, it is unusual to see people grouped together by age; families and other groups always function with staggered ages with older children caring for younger ones and younger ones learning from their elders. Our family based setting brings children together in this more natural setting.
Our vision for Treehaus Village is to give our children hands-on, meaningful opportunities as well connecting them to elements of nature by having children actively tend to our garden, experiment with natural materials and go on local field trips. While coloring pictures of apples can be fun for children, experiencing a real life version of one is even more meaningful when they can explore it first hand with all their senses. Life is a 3-dimensional experience and isn’t limited to what is happening in the classroom.
We as teachers aim to provide an engaging and nurturing environment where children are invited to ask questions, initiate investigations and to try new things. We want our students to be involved, compassionate citizens of the world who contribute to society and help their community.
