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 half day school for children ages 10 months-5 years old. Our school day hours are from 9am-Noon. Our snacks are vegetarian, simple and whole. Children over 2 years old have the option to stay for our picnic pals program until 1pm.
