Our Studios

Studio Design

Our Studios are designed to create flexible spaces for work, learning, and play.

They are tight-knit communities of mixed-age children who support each other and collaborate daily.

Children work together to create rules for the space. Some areas might be off limits for play, while others are more flexible.

Ultimately, the learners come together to agree to those ground rules and promises—all based on a key promise to not distract themselves or each other during times of work.

A primary goal in our Studios is to guide learners in their development of social and problem-solving skills.

When they got the class outdoors in nature, the troublemaker became the leader. Not just better behaved, but the leader. This made me wonder, how many leaders are we losing?
