We will present information on our school and tour the classroom with our teacher. Additionally, Melody Elder, M.A. Ed, of Awakened Heart Pareneting, will lead and moderate our discussion on the education REVOLUTION and how it comes to life in an environment like The Knowing Garden. If you are interested in enrolling at our school, this is a must...it will help you gain an understanding of our mission and give you a safe haven to explore your relationship to the school you know and the school you envision for your children.
This workshop is in cooperation with The Knowing Garden Elementary School: THE KNOWING GARDEN is a community Elementary school for the children and families of the Greater South Bay area. Now open at St.Andrews Church in Redondo Beach, our school supports the development of the whole child through constructivist philosophy and the understanding that humans generate knowledge and meaning from an interaction between their experiences and their ideas. We believe that a project-rich curriculum, hands-on experience and social plus emotional development will prepare our students to be critical thinkers who become lifelong learners and active contributors to the global community. With credentialed teachers, utilizing principles of humane education, low-ratios and developmentally appropriate guidelines, our learning plans will be generated in partnership with each child. Our students, from diverse backgrounds, become part of a greater community that values respect, mindfulness, creative expression, confidence, risk-taking, and concern for the Earth. THE KNOWING GARDEN is a non-profit private school with a public purpose. www.knowinggarden.org
