"We value space, to create a handsome environment and its potential to inspire social, affective, and cognitive learning. The space is an aquarium that mirrors the ideas and values of the people who live in it."  -- Loris Malaguzzi

Spaces matter. Inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach, we understand the physical environment to be the "third teacher," after the child's parents and classroom teachers. The physical setting of preschool establishes the foundation for our educational approach and community's values. Our school spaces are intentionally designed to bring nature indoors and bring students outdoors. Our materials are curated to offer children novel stimuli throughout their day, promoting curiosity and whimsy. We use space to promote collaboration and reflection, intimacy and connection. Take a tour of our spaces below.
