Aspen Grove School

The Aspen Grove School is a nature-based program where learning is substantive, yet joyful, playful and experiential. As a Reggio-inspired school, children learn by making key connections - to themselves, to community and to nature and spend time outdoors everyday. Credentialed teachers serve as guides to a child's own natural curiosity , using the Loose Parts approach to learning. Our Pre-school and Pre-K programs incorporate Literacy, Math, STEM, Spanish and Music through a partnership with Settlement Music School. The environment is the third teacher - their classrooms are spacious and aesthetically pleasing, filled with natural light and intentionally prepared with invitation to play and explore. The school features 3 large gross motor spaces set up for each age group.

    Aspen Grove has been my children’s home away from home for over 2 years and we couldn’t be happier with the care and education that they receive. Truly feel like the staff and teachers are family as they care deeply about the kids health and happiness and are in constant communication with parents.
