Wild Roots Preschool and Child Care
Each set of roots in the earth is naturally wild. Just as roots are allowed by Mother Nature to flow freely, the natural child wants freedom to follow his individual instincts. The child does not desire to conform or be labeled by a culture, curriculum or environment. He wants the freedom to grow naturally by individual instincts. We understand that children learn best when they are given the freedom to learn what their heart desires in a manner that suits them best.Learn More »
The first social experience away from home shapes the way the child sees the world from that point on. Children need to feel empowered and see themselves as a truly integral part of the world’s operations. Each child should feel important and needed in his or her environment. Children realize that they have something special to share with their world on each given day; it is our role to allow the child to naturally bring forth what they have inside of them. Children deserve quality, beauty, and greatness. It is vital to introduce a young child to beautiful surroundings where they learn to be graceful and respectful. Our carefully planned experience and wondrous environment will create a genuine love of life.
We desire to create an environment where families can feel at home and where children feel that they are truly in a place of comfort, joy and serenity. Children deserve a beautiful haven where the environment calms nerves, stimulates minds, and inspires natural creativity. We have not created a school in order to fit the mold of society or to mold the minds of children. Instead, we are here to inspire children to achieve the greatness that is inside each of them and to receive inspiration from each child to never cease creating more unique experiences.
Every day should be a new day of discovery in the eyes of a child. They should feel excited for each day they are alive and that the world has something amazing to offer them. Whether it be an earthworm in the mud, or a flower that has just bloomed in the garden, nothing should go unnoticed. To a child, everyday life is a gift.Learn More »
Children should be exposed to everything that benefits the young child’s development but with careful planning and proper use. We have created a unique environment that will allow each child to develop according their individual strengths, interests, and capabilities.We are inspired by the Montessori Method, the Reggio Emilia approach, Waldorf Education, and by each child we have the privilege of serving. We use our quality materials with the utmost respect and knowledge. There is nothing in the environment that does not serve an intentional purpose.
Montessori MethodThe Montessori Method is an educational approach that is based on the principles set forth by Maria Montessori, the 19th century Italian physician, researcher, and educator. She discovered a method of guiding the child in a specially prepared environment that allows each child to grow and learn at his or her own developmental capabilities. The Montessori Method, when truly used correctly, has been scientifically and neurologically proven to be a distinguished form of education that creates successful, independent, and innovative people.
Reggio Emilia ApproachThe Reggio Emilia approach to early education is inspired by the form of education that was begun after World War II in Reggio Emilia, Italy. Parents and educators began an enriching new way to teach young minds through child led activities, exploration of the environment, and spontaneous discovery of the natural world. Reggio Emilia inspired schools across the world are known for their artistic way of allowing children to use natural and recycled materials to discover principles of language, math, science, and the sensorial world around them.
Integration PhilosophyWild Roots Preschool and Child Care Center is a unique environment that integrates both philosophies very carefully. Montessori classrooms are beautifully planned out environments for the child’s essential development, however with the addition of the Reggio Emilia approach, we feel that the child will have even more creativity at his fingertips. By implementing Reggio inspired techniques, such as utilizing natural materials for discovery, we feel that children will feel empowered to learn spontaneously and creatively.
