What does The Green School offer:
An Eco Friendly Space, Organic and Farm to Table Appreciation, The Importance of the Outdoor Classroom,
A Global Curriculum and a Taste of Farm Life in the City!
In our warm and stimulating environment, we nurture independence, creativity and consideration in our growing children.
Entering each day through our doors, the children step into our cozy classroom and get a taste of farm life in an urban neighborhood. Here, in this idyllic atmosphere, they discover and learn hands on as we incorporate science, language arts, and math skills into activities like gardening, art, cooking/baking and animal care. Under the nurturing care of our teachers, we are able to give individual support with only twelve students per class. We believe in encouraging different learning styles and interests, and inspire our students to be curious, self-motivated and enthusiastic participants in their education.
Through our unique and nurturing educational program of animal connection, children are taught responsibility, compassion and patience. They learn about colors, shapes, letters and different habitats as we work in our flower and vegetable gardens and feed and care for our animal friends. During art we encourage the expression of feelings and emotions and recognize the importance of art in shaping and growing children's minds.
Through our green curriculum, we teach the importance of saving energy, recycling and composting, and we introduce healthy eating habits in our country kitchen. They also learn that typical "trash" becomes incredible art pieces.
A vital part of our philosophy is “paying it forward" and for each student enrolled, we sponsor another child to go to school in Thailand through our charity organization, Mari's Children.
