Thinker Garden Learning Center is dedicated to building and maintaining strong communication between the school, home, and community.
We provide our students with many opportunities to engage with and learn from our community. Examples of fieldtrips that we have taken are: trips to the farmer's market, local libraries, local parks, and museums. On these trips the students have a blast, learn about the world around them, and learn proper manners for public places!
If you would like to get involved with the school we have a variety of volunteer opportunities: reading with the students, planning meals (monthly), and many more! Please contact us by email or call us if you are interested.
We offer a programs for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and school age infants. School age children have the option of our before/after school program and/or our summer program!

" What children learn does not follow as an automatic result from what is taught, rather, it is in large part due to the children’s own doing, as a consequence of their activities and our resources".—Loris Malaguzzi, The Hundred Languages of Children.
Distant future period projects as stimulus for learning achievement
The curriculum is planning and their implementation revolve around open-ended as well often long-term projects that are based on the reciprocal nature of teacher-directed and child-initiated activity.

Our school utilizes simple uniforms. These uniforms create an even leveled playing field for each child who enters our school. No matter their education, socioeconomic status, exceptionalities/special needs, etc. we make it a priority for our children to see and treat themselves and others as equals, and we use uniforms to make our school environment reflect that. Our uniforms enable the children to worry less about how they or others look, what they do or do not have in comparison to others, and to allows the children to place their focus on learning and having fun! It is also beneficial because it prevents clothes from home from getting stained or dirty while at school.
Our school uniforms follow the French toast style and color. .
Our colors are navy blue, forest green, and white. Bottoms are khaki or navy blue. Boys may wear shorts or pants. Girls may wear skirts (skorts), shorts, capris, pants, or dresses (polo style in approved colors).
