We are sorry to announce we will be closed for summer and fall and hope to be able to provide educational programming to area families in the future.

Our work is to build a place that supports family in all its forms, and where all children feel challenged, capable and irreplaceable. Our days consist of learning through open-ended play and functional tasks such as cooking, building and gardening alongside attentive, caring adults. There is time and space for more focused projects led by the children’s interest and curiosity, and plenty of time for exploring the beautiful land around us. We believe that a child is never too young to be an important member of a community. That they should be valued and listened to. That they should be tasked with work that matters.
