Also, Woodhaven is a media-free school, where children are encouraged to exercise their own imaginations and creativity through art, music, dramatic play and hands-on exploration of simple toys and natural objects. As a cooperative, Woodhaven emphasizes family involvement. The preschool is operated by professional teachers and parents who choose to actively participate in their children’s education.
