The staff of The Earth School works to know each child in order to nurture growth through strengths and interests. Our mission is to stimulate learning in all developmental areas: intellectual, social, emotional, and physical. We intend to nurture a love of learning and a commitment to the responsible stewardship of the earth's resources. Children learn that they are part of a smaller community which contributes and is responsible to a larger community. We maintain a diverse population in mixed-age classrooms where children's differences are celebrated and each child is respected as an individual. Through active participation in projects, community service, field trips and other experiences, children learn to care for our earth and are excited about learning.
