Green Tulip Peace & Nature School Fall 2017 Open House!!

June 26, 2017

 ~ Portland's Only Free~Flowing School!
 
Who We Are:
The Green Tulip Peace and Nature School believes that children need independence and autonomy. We know that preschoolers are capable of making decisions that will impact how they learn and approach education in the future. We are a school that focuses less on academic achievements and more on whole self-development. We understand that nature and the outdoors are essential components to a happy, fulfilling childhood and are the foundation for self-awareness and self-esteem. We have seen first-hand the benefits of our work and have had great success in transforming how our children experience learning. The free flow environment has proven extremely effective in reducing stress and anxiety in children, especially children who fall on the Autism spectrum, struggle with social or general Anxiety, and children with ADHD. 
 
Our indoor/outdoor classrooms are carefully designed to provide a peaceful and safe learning space which allows the children freedom to explore knowing that their needs will be met. By doing so, our environment transforms to one less about classroom management and more about facilitating ideas and fostering creativity. It is a form play therapy that allows the children to learn at their own pace and work through challenges naturally, and over the years we’ve received numerous referrals by occupational therapists who saw the benefits of our work.
Our hope is to build connections, encourage awareness, and model acceptance.
 
We look forward to many happy years of working together and watching our children grow.
 
Philosophy & Approach:
Holistic education is based on the premise that each person finds identity, meaning, and purpose in life through connections to the community, to the natural world, and to spiritual values such as compassion and peace. Holistic education aims to call forth from people an intrinsic reverence for life and a passionate love of learning. This is done, not through an academic “curriculum” that condenses the world into instructional packages, but through direct engagement with the environment. Holistic education nurtures a sense of wonder.
 
What your child will experience at the Green Tulip:
The natural world as their classroom. Our outdoor classroom is set to accommodate most weather so children can be free to move about and learn in the environment the meets their needs.The outdoors is always accessible for learning, exploring, playing, or tending to our plants and animals. 
 
An outdoor classroom full of opportunities to learn including but not limited to an outdoor art station, library, sandbox, fairy garden, chicken coop, a dig pit, garden, climbing structures and more!
 
 A positive happy environment where curiosity is encouraged and nurtured.
 
 We naturally will introduce your child to delicious and nutritious foods. We serve organic, locally grown and sometimes even fruits and vegetables we grew ourselves. We believe that CLEAN preservative-free food is an essential for wellness, and cook from scratch whenever possible. 
    
Life Skills- Cooperation, relationship building, and working through emotions.
 
 A Sense of  Community
 
Independent and Free Play
 
 A Culture of  Peace; We will model and discuss peace often and will work very hard to spread it around.
 
Our goal is to create an environment that intrigues but does not overwhelm or over-stimulate the children. We offer an environment that is safe, healthy, comforting and free from chemicals. 


For more information or to RSVP to our open house, please email us at Greentulippreschool@gmail.com or visit our website at www.greentulipschool.com
 
Thank you and may you have a day filled with peace and joy!

Willow Tree Preschool enrolling for fall 2017

May 15, 2017

May 6 2015 031 - Copy
The Willow Tree Preschool is in its 12th year as a community of learners; we are an eclectic program influenced by the progressive early childhood programs of Reggio Emilia, Italy developed with over 20 years of experience in early childhood education. We share our gratitude for nature, love of the arts and deep respect for playful inquiry in a multitude of ways. Willow Tree is in a warm beautiful home environment, that has been created to meet the needs of the young child. Children are encouraged to move and learn at their own pace, inviting them to explore and build meaning through their experiences. It is through playful exploration that real learning happens, creative thinking evolves, problem solving develops, and true connection and meaning is made.

Weekly visits from the yoga and music specialist promote further exploration, enhancing our curriculum.

The preschool hours are from 9 am to 1 pm for children 3 to 5 years of age.

We would love to meet you and your child, contact the director to set up a tour kim@willowtreepreschool.com

Looking for a Second Child for a Private Waldorf Preschool Class

March 27, 2017

We have a very sensitive sensory girl who is 4.5 and who does not do well in preschool because of the number of children.  Her last preschool teacher (a certified Waldorf teacher) offered to host a two hour, once per week preschool session for her and one other child.  This teacher and her preschool are absolutely amazing!  We are looking for one other child between the ages of 3 and 5 who would join us for this adventure.  Maybe another sensory child like her who struggles with larger groups of children.  Or, a non-sensory child who is quiet and would like the opportunity to experience a beautiful Waldorf school once per week.

We would meet for two hours on Thursday afternoons.  The preschool is on Mt. Scott. 

Please contact Heather at hblankenheim@gmail.com if you are interested.

Olive Branch School Montessori 4 Spaces Open

February 10, 2017

 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
 
Now Accepting applications for 2017-2018 waitlist (4 guaranteed spaces open, availability now), for ages 2.5 years -6 years. Children must be in pull-ups for September 1 2017.

We love our work with children and view every day as an opportunity to see the best that humanity IMG_5677
has to offer. We are delighted when we glimpse the compassion of a child rubbing another's back during story-time or asking another if she needs a hug, and we are joyed at the independence of a three year old setting up a tea party and inviting his friends. Each day is something new and amazing at Olive Branch School, a Montessori Primary School environment serving children ages 2.5-6 years old and their families.

Our school offers a range of experiences that encourage resourcefulness (critical thinking), support the building of self-control, discipline and decision making skills (cognitive and executive functioning) and nurture the emotional and spiritual growth of each child through positive social interactions. Children attending Olive Branch School are a part of a supportive, shared community experience 5 days a week. Our class size is small and responsive with a 7:1 ratio, 14 child maximum. A Montessori education truly gives a child the keys to the world and sets them on the road to loving learning.

Certified In-Home CF502413.
