Our beautiful 12.5-acre campus was designed with engaging, meaningful education in mind. Each of our four buildings invite children’s curiosity and promote a sense of community and connection. Spaces are designed to honor the social, physical, emotional and intellectual development of each child. Specialist classrooms and home classrooms are filled with student work and faces, documenting the learning and friendship that occur at school each day. Further, we use our spaces to reinforce the different learning identities that students develop at school. Students at TLS are becoming readers, writers, mathematicians, scientists, historians, designers, artists, musicians, athletes, environmentalists, engineers, researchers, analysts, collaborators, community members, friends and so much more. Our spaces offer a physical reminder of the ways that everyone is growing each day.
Learning continues beyond the classroom in our stunning outdoor spaces. Like most other schools, The Little School has fun playground equipment such as tire swings and climbers. However, what sets us apart are the extensive green spaces available to our students every day. Teachers may take students to the garden to tend the plants or learn about the growing cycle, or they may venture into the outdoor classroom to learn about shelter building or so the natural beauty can inspire artistic creations. Students may play Capture the Flag on the Big Field during Outside Time or stay and play after school while their families also take the time to connect. The covered court, labyrinth and 6 acres of woods provide even more areas for reflection, engagement, play and learning. Though our campus is vast, students move through it as though they are home – safe, known, respected and loved.
