Educators with a mission to advocate for lifelong learning; to promote children’s rights and culture in community with each other, with families, and with society; to develop outdoor classrooms to let nature be a powerful teacher; to connect with each child in our school; and to enable children’s drive to construct knowledge about the world, themselves, and others.

They are members of NAREA (North American Reggio Emilia Alliance), and NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children). They are licensed by DHS (Department of Human Services), and received 3 out of 3 Stars every year.

Their Beliefs
‘A new Leaf’ symbolizes the beauty, vitality, and power of each child. A New Leaf believes that every child is gifted, and has the right to explore a rich and safe learning environment.  They believe that children are social from birth, and that they have the need and the right to engage in community with adults and other children.  They feel strongly that society shall not waste or betray children’s potential, and that they shall inspire joy, connections, and success for every child.

They spend their day between outdoor and indoor spaces to explore man-made and natural materials.  This environment filled with poly-sensorial experiences, hands-on inquiry, nature, and arts supports their Reggio Emilia approach to childhood and education.
