The famous African proverb says ‘it takes a village to raise a child’. At CLC we work with the quartet of community members, parents and families, learning designers, and students themselves to bring the power of our learning village to life.
Colina Learning Center welcomes the whole family and encourages a multi-generational community. Adults are involved in preparing and leading ‘expeditions’ for both children and other parents. Families can participate in many school activities, but also lead learning and share expertise on fascinating topics ranging from building a mindfulness practice to starting a business.
We also involve parents as co-creators of our learning model. The first families to join us will contribute to the development of our curriculum through active participation and ongoing feedback and suggestions.
