Salmonberry Summer Programs are LIVE!
Welcome to Salmonberry School
A holistic educational pathway for children ages four through twelve.
The Salmonberry Kindergarten, affectionately known as the Salmon program, is a child-centered and holistic program for children 4-6 years old. The Salmon program is built upon a strong foundation and understanding of child development and a belief in the need for children at these ages to be immersed in a world of imaginative and creative play.
Made up of the Otters, Cedars and Eagles classrooms, the Salmonberry Elementary program is a holistic school for children 6-12 years old. The program uses an integrated thematic approach to provide meaningful learning experiences to the two classrooms’ multi-age learners. Students are offered a strong academic program, which is designed to meet the unique needs and learning styles of each child.
Children are natural learners and engage much more than just their intellect. In pursuing optimal academic growth for all students, Salmonberry uses an integrated and thematic approach that draws out children’s sense of imagination, creativity and adventure. Curriculum is designed to bring various subjects together through whole experiences both inside the classroom and beyond.
Salmonberry’s smaller multi-age classrooms are designed to deepen the relationships between teachers and learners by emphasizing communication and kindness and respecting a diversity of experiences. In this intimate environment of cooperation and camaraderie, each child is known and cared for by teachers and friends alike.
Our students are given opportunities to explore learning their bodies through play and dance; they explore creativity through art, craft, music and drama; and they learn to pause, breathe and self-reflect through meditation, journaling and community meetings. Teachers guide students as they learn through their minds, bodies, hearts and spirit.
