To support children’s natural curiosities, teachers at Branches Community School construct their curriculum alongside children. While, one month, children might be studying insects on the playground, another time of year may lead to explorations of water, robotics, or outer space. During each period of investigation, teachers empower children to build skills and knowledge through exploring new materials, asking and answering questions, and problem-solving with others.
Teachers support the unique learning style of each child, taking note of what motivates each learner. While one child may live and breathe vehicles, another may be fascinated with drama, art, or always being on the go! Weaving together both individual explorations and class-wide projects, the teachers at Branches are experts in creating differentiated learning.
All staff at Branches hold credentials in early childhood, most with a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree. Teachers are trained in CPR, first aid, and health & safety and also participate in ongoing professional development opportunities.
