Children blossom into independent thinkers in a serene setting, using their senses and working with materials introduced in a very deliberate way. Children's Garden's approach is different from play, eat,and sleep-based programs. For one thing, they have "manipulative" and "developmental" toys, which teach various skills, and concepts in very concrete ways. Children don't play with wooden beads, glass beakers, etc.; they call what they do "work" mostly do it independently. There's a strong emphasis on grace and courtesy and on practical life. If a child makes a mess, he or she cleans it up (don't expect this at home). The vibe is calm and uncluttered and the children amazingly focused.
