Welcome!

Our schoolhouse-hold runs on the belief that children are drawn to experience, to learning, and to each other. We see it as our responsibility to create an environment where each child can reach out for life and touch it, wallow in it, tinker with it, interpret it, and express it.

From providing materials that inspire curiosity, wonder, manipulation, motion, contemplation, and gales of laughter to keeping the house full of adults who are highly intelligent and deeply affectionate, our intentions are clear to us and, we hope, to you as well.

This is a house of love and acceptance, not of law and order. The road of self-discovery takes many paths, – in our case over ninety of them- and to allow those differences and keep a house of children and adults is both an exhausting and exhilarating experience – one that we vow will continue here in perpetuity.

Thanks,
Andrew Urbanus
