Restore Childhood to Children


Join our Indiegogo Crowd funding Campaign. Your donation is tax deductible as we are a 501c3 Tax Exempt Entity. We are a nature-based community school including pre/k through 6th grade.


Help us provide scholarships for children that want to come to our school to experience joy in learning.


Children deserve to play and commune in nature. They thrive in an atmosphere of love and understanding. Self-initiative and the innate genius emerge when the child is embraced by nature in the heart of community.


The children are the messengers in our Introductory Video:


"Let communities radiating the heart’s magnanimity embrace the fullness of childhood with reverence for both ecology and psychology. The extent of our awakening as a society to encourage the compassionate genius in our midst is even now flowing into a future that either pinions the wings of the heart, or sends it soaring. Our children are destined for transcendence, and the harmonies of the heart can give them wings."
