New Slideshow about the Kindergarten

Take a look! Green Meadow’s Early Childhood programs foster the foundations of academic excellence. Our Early Childhood teachers provide the young child with a warm, beautiful, loving, home-like environment, which is protective and secure, where the day unfolds in a predictable, regular way. The children are given a range of activities and the structure they need to prepare for the next phase of school life.

Raising 'Good' Kids

As we spend more time with our children this summer, let's remember these six principles.

A Strong Trust in Children's Abilities

This piece from The Washington Post is worth reading. Our favorite quote: "I also believe that competence can only be gained through experience; therefore, allowing our children to take risks will actually make them safer. Behind this philosophy is a strong trust in children’s abilities in general; I often feel that we don’t give children enough credit in this area."

What Are Schools For?

This recent article from The Boston Globe reminds us that part of the responsibility of schools is to help young people develop non-academic skills.

Parenting Advice From "America’s Worst Mom"

This recent piece from The New York Times reminds us of the importance of letting our children have experiences that build their resilience and self-confidence.

A salient quote: "Dr. Gray links the astronomical rise in childhood depression and anxiety disorders, which are five to eight times more common than they were in the 1950s, to the decline in free play among young children. 'Young people today are less likely to have a sense of control over their own lives and more likely to feel they are the victims of circumstances, which is predictive of anxiety and depression,' he said."

Study Suggests that Freedom Improves Creativity

This article from Psychology Today looks at a 2012 study documenting a continuous decline in creativity among American schoolchildren over the last two or three decades. The research suggests that play and curiosity are foundations for learning. They are also the bedrock of Waldorf Education.
