MEET THE "VILLAGE"

Our job is too difficult and too beautiful to do alone. -Amelia Gambetti, Reggio Emilia 2015

Passionate, dedicated, and loving, Open Air Village teachers love their work and it shows in everything they do. Our goal is to make a positive difference in every young person who steps into our program. We strive to create a calm, secure environment where children can thrive and guide their learning in whatever direction their interests take them. Teachers are "play facilitators" and supportive role models, enhancing the environment with their subtle presence. When a child is part of Open Air Village, they are an extension of our family.
