We provide parents with a safe and natural, child-directed environment for their children where choice, communication, and respect are paramount to support each child’s innate desire to learn and create freely while teaming with parents to ensure they feel supported and heard throughout their child’s early education experience.
Creating a holistic and natural learning space for children as we focus on supporting, nurturing, and flourishing each unique, whole child to instill a foundation of independence, confidence, mindfulness, and social-emotional skills to implement these inner tools throughout all walks of life.
The core of our culture at Inquisitive Minds is enveloped in the Power of Yet and Growth Mindset. We expect consistent growth and aspire to push and uphold our leaders, teachers, parents, and students to reach their highest potential.
Our schools largely implement Montessori principles and methods in addition to Waldorf and Reggio methodologies to provide a uniquely designed curriculum for each child to learn and grow in the most natural ways possible.
We believe each of these methods contributes a crucial piece to the puzzle of providing a well-rounded, child-directed education centered around each Whole Child. Below you will find additional information about how each of these methods differs and how we implement each method to combine them into our unique Pedagogy Trio™ curriculum
Montessori is for those who believe it is highly beneficial for students to have a foundation of independence as well as exposure to acquiring leadership and entrepreneurial abilities.
Independence skills are taught through Practical Life works and activities on a daily basis.
Waldorf is for those who believe that individualism and creativity are crucial and believe that students thrive within a consistent routine environment where there are daily windows scheduled to provide them the freedom to choose their work and play.
Reggio is for those who believe that collaboration and conflict resolution skills are imperative in todays world. We are focused on instilling a balance of independence and healthy interdependence for children to thrive as they become teenagers and adults.
In our child-centered environment, teachers serve as guides with a focus lesson taught each day. Following their Daily Rhythm, students are then given the opportunity to choose what they would like to be working on.
We support children learning at their own pace and implement mixed age groups starting with our Early Elementary classes for ages 3-5 and moving forward with Lower Elementary for ages 5-8.
Specialties classes are taught each day of the week which include music, art, movement, cooking, and gardening. We highly encourage creative learning and outdoor exploration to encourage students to connect back to nature.
Anthroposophy is an impulse to nurture the life of the soul in the individual and society. We incorporate mindful practices such as yoga, meditation, breathing, and listening to your body through intuitive eating and emotional skills.
We encourage exploration throughout the learning process and connecting with our community. Project-based lessons and collaboration become more involved and consistent throughout Lower & Upper Elementary.
Our Reggio inspiration shines through our use of the app, Procare, to document our students and their progress. This includes photos, videos, and written observations throughout each day.
"Education, as today conceived, is something separated both from biological and social life. All who enter the educational world tend to be cut off from society…People are prepared for life by exclusion from it.”
