Wild Poppy Studio
Wild Poppy Studio is inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach that traces back to Reggio, Italy. There are five pillars that truly define this approach: *Respect for children *Family and community involvement *Emergent curriculum *Teachers as co-constructivists *Environment as a third teacher The staff at Wild Poppy Studio sincerely believes that children are capable and intelligent human beings. And out of respect for all human beings, we stress the importance of listening. If you listen to children carefully, you will find they are full of complex ideas and carefully processed hypotheses. They also have a natural desire to work with their peers, are more just and fair than we may give them credit for and are certainly more empathetic than some may believe them to be. Children are capable of true analytical and scientific thought. When given the respect and space to express this, the learning opportunities are endless! To love learning, you must love school. Wild Poppy Studio is a school that cherishes its environment and respects its tools. We understand that children need to dig. They need to run. And they need to climb. Outside our studio, we've created a safe and grassy environment for our children to run barefoot. We've installed a play structure where they can exert energy in a fun and productive way. We've grown and will nurture a garden full of mud and edible organic herbs, vegetables and fruits with your children. We have also transformed our classroom and part of our outdoor space into an art studio fit for the most creative of minds. We believe that children deserve the highest-quality materials and tools to express their ideas, ones that we ourselves would use. Our studio rooms feature light exploration, the highest-quality clays, tempera, acrylic, watercolor paints, stippling, fan, and filbert brushes, beautiful glass beads, pastels and more. We also serve exclusively vegan and organic snacks, using all-natural ingredients including avocado, blue corn tortilla chips, vegetarian chili and figs. A palette of foods is just as important as a palette of paints! At Wild Poppy Studio, your children's overall well-being and learning come first. Wild Poppy Studio admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges and activities generally accorded or made available to students of the school. Wild Poppy Studio does not discriminate against any employee, applicant for employment, independent contractor, or any other person because of race, color ancestry, national origin, age, or gender.
St. Timothy School Pre-K
St. Timothy School is a Pre-K through 8th Grade Catholic School that was established in 1958. For over 50 years, we have educated generations of children, instilling them with character, compassion and values for life. Under the nurturing guidance of our dedicated faculty, children at St. Timothy School are challenged academically and taught character-building skills that will support them their entire lives. We understand that the years between four and fourteen are the most intensely productive and vital learning years in a child's development. We know that early educational experiences help shape the kind of learners our students will become. Therefore, we focus on developing a spirit of inquiry and a joy in learning in our students, which helps them realize and build on their academic potential. St Timothy School is a small school, deliberately. Small class sizes enable us to focus on each child as an individual, to understand what motivates them and to support their academic development. Our classes foster a feeling of family ? a supportive climate of trust and understanding, community-based values, and teamwork. In this environment, children form positive and enduring relationships with classmates and teachers. St. Timothy School students and faculty come from a wide variety of racial, ethnic, religious and socioeconomic backgrounds. Our diversity enriches our students scholastic experience, and helps each child discover his or her own uniqueness and infinite worth as a human being ? and that of their peers and teachers.
