Ashlar's mission is to provide a well-rounded education that nurtures whole-child potential. Our inclusive curriculum specifically focuses on developing the following 7 intelligences: Academic, Social, Emotional, Artistic, Creative, Physical and Spiritual. We deliver learning opportunities which can be described as hands-on, child-lead, experiential, play-based, emergent, nature-based, individualized and holistic. It is our belief that children benefit from spending ample time in nature, as well as free-play in abundance. Our studio is set on a farm, and our students spend roughly half of their days outdoors, working in the gardens and exploring the 15 acres of forest.
