What Sunflower’s Pillars mean in action

Respect for the Individual

  • Children choose their own activities and are encouraged to express feelings and opinions.
  • Parents receive resources, mentoring and support to make their own choices about what works best for their family.

Learning Through Experience 2

  • Emphasis on hands-on, sensory experiences in Play, Nature and the Arts. 
  • Opportunities for process-oriented art, music, science, nature exploration, movement and dramatic play.

Learning Within Community

  • A cooperative program with parents and teachers working together to provide an inspiring, supportive mixed-age learning environment.
  • Teachers work with children and parents to develop good communication and conflict resolution skills.

Remember Play?

We do.

At Sunflower we are play advocates. We view play as a basic human need– as vital to children’s growth as food, water and sleep– as well as a catalyst for learning. But beyond that, we value the experience of pure joy, wonder and self-awareness that play brings to people at all stages of life. We believe play makes for better friends, parents, partners– people– and, ultimately, a better world.

Seedlings Play-Based Parent Cooperative Nature Preschool

In Seedlings, hands-on sensory experiences in Play, Nature and the Arts (think melting crayons, befriending worms and building moats in the sand) spark passion, grow confidence and encourage curiosity– skills that serve children well in their future academic lives.

But life isn’t all about academics… In this mixed-age environment, children also learn skills that help them lead more meaningful connected lives out in the world. Skills like creative problem solving, conflict resolution, communication, empathy and respect for others. The element that ties everything together is community. Seedlings students and parents form the heart of the Sunflower community, supporting each other in learning and in life.
