My five - year old got out the trees book. She was going through it, and she said, “Come with me, Daddy! Can you please pull the branch down so I can see the flowers?” She was right in her identification! – Evergreen has helped inculcating a mind of curiosity. She’s asking the questions. I have to believe that she’s simply been inculcated with all of that and she’s putting it altogether. She’s five! We see it in our seven - year old, too.
I feel like our older kids have been taught in such a way that they now enjoy the process of learning.
Inquiry learning drew me in, and then the multi-age classrooms. I value the idea of teaching how to think rather than what to think.”
The balanced calendar attracted us, but this program taught them how to think, rather than memorize and regurgitate.
The first thing that comes to mind is the community – a family atmosphere which is partly due to the size of the school.
