With the support of friends, families, and foundations, we have grown from a single early childhood class to a thriving multi-campus school over 48 years. Students in our school receive more than an education rooted in creativity, nature, and social responsibility —their entire families gain a community of nurturing human beings.

Join us in fostering a new generation who will make our world a better place.
