Home » Apply for Roots Cottonwood Roots Admissions Application - Roots We are now enrolling kids ages 3-6 for the Roots program, a mixed-age learning environment rooted in curiosity, discovery, and play. At Cottonwood we curate space for kids to explore, tinker, dabble, and invent. Kids use the city as the classroom and enjoy weekly music, yoga, cooking, art and science classes. Kids are naturally self-directed learners; at Cottonwood we give them the space, tools, time and support they need to learn through discovery. The Cottonwood Roots program has space for 10 kids ages 3-6. This program is supported by 2 full-time facilitators.

The school will support student's requests for learning, but does not direct learning activities according to a specific curriculum. The School Meeting may make certain activities mandatory for the smooth operation of the school, otherwise the choices are up to each child.I understand, support and agree to this philosophy and extent of freedomI do not agree with this approach to learningPhoneThis field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.
