The way we see it, we have as much to learn from our children as they do from us. Your child astonishes you every day. Sometimes you gasp at her maturity, like her ability to remember and use words you’ve just read in her storybook. Other times her innocence brings tears to your eyes. She’s a child—wondrous, exceptional, vulnerable.
At Oakwood, we celebrate this amazing stage of life—we don’t rush it.
We take time to discover and nurture the talents and interests of every student. And we make sure your child feels safe and encouraged to discover herself. Oakwood is the place for her to seek out new experiences—shooting a three-point basket, playing a dragon on stage, asking a burning question, making a new best friend. Here, variety feels exciting. It’s a chance to learn something new, or to work out a solution. The way we see it, we have as much to learn from our children as they do from us. So let’s all learn together, as an extended family of exuberant, thoughtful explorers.
