Regenerative Schools balance traditional and innovative practices, respecting and creatively weaving the history of local culture into solutions that meet needs for the future. These diverse places of learning serve the learners by igniting their senses and channeling their natural curiosity. When children are allowed to learn by doing and through relationships with each other and the adults that support them, this sets the foundation for thriving communities.
