I created this program for my son, Chiron. After searching for a program to send him to, I realized that in order to get the preschool experience I wanted for him (See Curriculum), I'd have to create my own. Fortunately, my decade-plus career background is working with kids at the early childhood level, and my academic background through the master's level is in child development and human development. The outdoors is just my hobby, but I come from a family of educators, and we take learning seriously. I've taken courses in everything from botany to bird language. What I want most for our students, and what I always wanted for Chiron, is to nurture an appetite for lifelong learning, the kind that makes life richer and more delightful at every age.
