Throughout the years, Lori has taught many classes, from Girl Scout botany day camp, botany
blocks at PHWS and Handwork for two years for the first grade. At UWW, she taught for several
years adult evening art classes and in private studios. Her love for art continues to grow and
flourish as she works in her own studio with fibers and felting, mosaics, and clay.
Her teaching philosophy is simple: observe the world around you and the people that are in it
and empower the youth... for knowledge is their only true power.
“Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination circles the world”
– Albert Einstein
In early childhood, young children are nurtured in a home-like environment. Their days include time in nature, artistic activities, creative play with natural toys, stories, songs, and practical activities such as building, sewing and cooking. The curriculum fosters the curiosity and joy of childhood and builds the self confidence and pre-academic skills that become the foundation for formal learning in the grades.
All elements of the kindergarten are guided by trained teachers who deeply understand how your child learns – engaging him or her intellectually, emotionally and physically. The curriculum is supported by a strong oral tradition that provides rich language experiences that are successful in cultivating good speech and expression. This approach exposes your child to significantly larger vocabularies than those found in early-reader programs, allowing her or him to expand their literacy skills through dramatization, poetry, puppet plays, songs, storytelling and drawings – creating a foundation in reading and writing.
