Why Wonderschooling?

Children are naturally curious.

We, their first teachers, have a responsibility to nurture that curiosity, to model what it looks like to wonder, question, test, and even fail. We are their guides, not only as children, but as future thinkers, inventors, entrepreneurs, collaborators, innovators.

In this world of high stakes testing, performance pressure, and benchmarks, we need to give our kids room to breathe, to develop and discover at a pace that works for them, and nurture their confidence in themselves as capable, independent thinkers.

This blog is primarily intended for parents, educators, and caregivers of 2-8 year olds looking to add more wonder to their days.
