General School Mission

"She believed that each child is born with a unique potential to be revealed, rather than as a "blank slate" waiting to be written upon. Her main contribution to the work of those of us raising and educating children are in these areas:
Preparing the most natural and life supporting environment for the child.
Observing the child living freely in this environment.
Continually adapting the environment in order that the child may fulfill his greatest potential - physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
