A sense of calmness and tranquility for both children and adults embraces you as you enter this space. You immediately feel welcome and at peace here. Homely little touches surround you – cozy little areas for snuggling up, vibrant plants, elements of nature wherever you glance, a shell here, a rock there, twigs, leaves and stones to be used in play, crooked little paths that take you on a journey of discovery. Nature’s gifts are valued and children’s thoughts are captured. In the classrooms, learning is alive and aesthetic beauty appreciated.
"Every child should have mud pies, grasshoppers, tadpoles, frogs, mud turtles, elderberries, wild strawberries, acorns, chestnuts, trees to climb. Brooks to wade, woodchucks, bats, bees, butterflies, various animals to pet, hayfields, pinecones, rocks to roll, snakes, huckleberries and hornets. And any child who has been deprived of these has been deprived of the best part of education"
- Luther Burbank
