Guided by a deep respect for childhood and a commitment to embrace and create joy, The Little School...
We cultivate authentic learning in community and the natural world. By creating deep connections to others and the environment, children feel compelled to engage their creativity and intellect. We capitalize on this readiness to learn by creating meaningful experiences that deepen each child’s skills.
Curiosity is one of the most powerful motivators for friendship and learning. The Little School amplifies curiosity by leaning into student questions and promoting inquiry throughout the day. Our campus and opportunities for outdoor learning make the classroom a living laboratory, teeming with discoveries.
We have the honor to work with children from the time they are three until they are eleven. It’s a time of incredible development and growth. Over that period, we expand each child’s sense of self by bringing respect and interest to the many unique components of their identity. We expand each child’s sense of belonging by promoting a global and multicultural community. We expand each child’s sense of possibility and invite them to imagine and build toward their most genuine selves.
There is much more to the story about who we are as a school and what we value beyond these quick data points. Visit our At A Glance page, Diversity and Inclusion page or our Students page to take a closer look.
