Support the University Elementary School Collaboration and the Early Childhood Studies Program

In partnership with the Cotati Rohnert Park School District, we have established a new kind of school for Sonoma County.  This school run under the district will provide local area parents with an alternative to the traditional curriculum provided to students.  The school will feature research-based teaching methods to support the development of the whole child all the while allow each child to succeed.  While attending to standards and skills, students will engage in play-based learning activities while they develop the skill necessary to undertake larger and larger problem-based learning in the intermediate grades.  We believe that by targeting cognitive and inquisitive abilities of students, the academic skills will come along.  Of course we will closely monitor this with students.  Moreover, this school will serve as a base for our Early Childhood Studies program where we expect our many interns to help teacher serve their students.  Contribute to this fantastic endeavor and contact us for a visit.
