Learning in Community

“Stand aside for a while and leave room for learning, observe carefully what children do, and then, if you have understood well, perhaps teaching will be different from before.” -Loris Malaguzzi

Branches Community School is a vibrant early learning community for young children and their families. Inspired by the Reggio-Emilia approach to early childhood education, we believe children thrive in diverse communities.

We love the people of Durham and welcome families of all ethnicities, faiths, sexual orientations, gender identities, and family structures.  We strive to create an environment free of bias, and provide regular opportunities to discuss, advocate, and support the rights of all children.
