Welcome to the Beginning School!
Walk through the doors of the Beehive—as the Beginning School is affectionately known—and you will be surrounded by the hum of children joyfully, naturally, purposefully learning.
Here in the Beehive we honor young childhood. While giving our students the space and time to be young, we also build their agency and capabilities by inspiring them to be big. Our teachers are masterful experts at harnessing the power of children’s natural curiosities. Beginning Schoolers are engaged in wondering, investigating, hypothesizing, building understandings, and developing emergent academic skills in service to their intellectual endeavors. Through play, children learn new concepts and skills and become artists, scientists, innovators, writers, mathematicians, investigators, and problem-solvers.
To contribute and find success in the world, we know our children will need to be able to listen to others, appreciate different perspectives, and work together to solve problems. This journey begins in the Beginning School. We cultivate a child’s sense of self—they learn to manage their emotions, thoughts, and energy—while we simultaneously help children begin to see outside of themselves. Through careful guidance, our students become a welcoming, supportive community.
