Our teaching aims to develop the whole child. That means it’s built around three distinct stages of development: the willing, the heart, and the head.

In the willing, a familiar environment encourages play and practical connection. For the heart, imaginative themes provide a rich foundation for learning. And lastly, the head, where academic subjects unfold through thought-provoking, experiential lessons.

In early childhood, Tarremah is a sanctuary of storytelling, cooking, arts, crafts, and play. Going forward, an organic rhythm guides the way each day, season, and year unfolds. It is a rhythm that responds to the physical world students immerse themselves in.

Each stage provides meaningful and creative learning experiences. An emphasis is placed on trusting relationships that are built on respect and a deep understanding of every child. By providing a community of loving support, we nurture every child through their school years.

We are often told, at a college level, that our students are most likely to ask questions that the other kids in the classrooms are probably wishing to ask but were too afraid.
