The Children’s School invites parents of young children to attend an Open House on Friday, September 23, from 5:00-7:00 pm.
“We love to meet parents and speak with them firsthand to learn about their children and to share with them how our unique programs, individualized attention and material-rich environment meet children where they are and create the foundation for a lifelong love of learning,” said Maureen Murphy, Head of School. “It is only when you meet our warm, caring and highly-trained teachers that you come to understand what we offer at the School, and how we engage children’s innate creativity and curiosity to facilitate learning and strong habits of mind.”
Understanding that tomorrow’s creators, makers, and innovators are with us today, The Children’s School provides a learning environment that invites children to explore their imagination and creativity freely.
Every day students fan out in spacious, light-filled classrooms where they can choose from among many good paths to learning. They immerse themselves in open-ended materials that encourage them to test their hunches and explore mediums such as paint, clay, collage, construction, and pencil drawing that encourage the non-linear thinking, experimentation and risk-taking so crucial to creative expression. A thoughtful music program takes them on an enthralling journey that begins with the discovery of their own voices—children’s first instrument—and progresses to learning about the different genres of musical expression.
It is a powerful experience for a child to imagine something and then make it tangible. Delight and joy—I created this!—nourish confidence and stoke the engine of independent thought. Students say: “Let’s try this!”; “Why didn’t this work the way I expected?”; “What happens if I change this musical note?”; and “Is there a pattern in my painting?” There are no right or wrong answers in these explorations, only the beauty of children creating, modifying, and improving ideas born of their imagination.
Attend an Open House to learn about The Children’s School’s mission and best practices as well as their innovative, individualized programs.
