EARTH’s vision is that all children are supported in working through their challenges and have the opportunity to experience joy, curiosity and enthusiasm for their learning. Our students are more successful outside the traditional classroom, with opportunities for hands-on experiences, project-based learning, and many forms of movement.
Inspired by the content within Rudolf Steiner’s curative lectures, EARTH has an outdoor and farm-based approach that emphasizes individual attention for each child. Hallmarks of EARTH’s approach are:
- Small student-to-teacher ratio
- Individualized observation of, and attention to, the needs of each child
- Customized student support plans for each student
- Care circles involving parents, teachers, and other adult helpers, held for each child each year
