Our approach to education comes directly from an absolute love of children and childhood. We believe that every child is capable and competent. We observe, document and interpret childrens thinking and learning in order to understand, support and extend the childrens meaning-making experiences.
As a school community we value process, play, inquiry, stewardship for the earth, relationships, and creativity. Within the context of meaningful experiences and reciprocal relationships among teachers, parents, and children, it is our goal to inspire dispositions for life long learning.

At Cow Hollow School we hold an image of the child as one who experiences the world, who is part of the world from birth, who is dynamic and curiousa child who approaches the world with a competent set of learning strategies, styles and abilities. We believe that each child has the right to a nurturing, safe, interesting and authentic environment in which to grow, build relationships and make connections. Parents and teachers at CHS work in collaboration to provide the setting where children can learn through relationships and participate in a variety of developmentally appropriate experiences.
Through child-directed, teacher-supported investigation and in-depth project work and exploration, the children learn to hypothesize, predict, problem solve, negotiate and co-create theories. We work toward shared meaning across relationships and curriculum that produces an atmosphere of attention to various points of view, learning styles and dispositions. Reflected in our practices as teachers, director, and advocates for children, families and community is an investment and commitment to diverse learning populations, community building and learner empowerment.
