A Collaborative Learning School


Turning Sun School is a progressive school inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach and place-based education focusing on our local community and natural world. We build our year around seasonal celebrations and class projects following the project approach.

We are an open and affirming program and welcome all families to Turning Sun. Turning Sun School is a non-religious school that welcomes families from various religious and non-religious traditions alike.

We are a school for children ages 10 months to 5 years old offering half and full day care between the hours of 8:30am-3:30pm (may vary per campus). Our snacks are vegetarian, simple and whole.

  • If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement, and mystery of the world we live in.

    — Rachel Carson

  • What we want to do is activate within children the desire and will and great pleasure that comes from being the authors of their own learning.

  • All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.

    — Pablo Picasso
