** We have started tours for the 2021-2022 School year. Due to Covid tours will be scheduled via Zoom or prior to the school opening for the day. Please call or email us regarding availability for the Redwood and 39th Campuses. **

Due to Covid we are on the floor more ensuring the safety of our staff and children. We apologize for our slow response to emails, and voice messages during this unsual time. 
Our goal at Chatham Schools is to support the natural process for each child to realize his/her full potential.  Our nature infused environment provides the early building blocks for life long skills that help the whole child develop naturally.

The first 5 years are all about movement, NOT sitting.  Our outdoor classroom allows children the time and space to unlock the mysteries of the world around them.  Rain or shine our outdoor activities offer endless opportunity for natural learning.

Our indoor curriculum is planned around a weekly theme and includes, art, drama, circle time and manipulatives.  Outdoors, our school offers even more opportunity in areas for music, messy play, loose parts, play structures, gardening, wildlife appreciation, bikes and a flowing river (39th Campus) for water play and natural creativity.

Our modern society is silently killing the true joys of childhood.  Electronics and over planning their days creates "bubble wrapped" kids with poor motor skills, poor social skills and poor attention spans.  At Chatham Schools we provide a beautiful, soothing environment to explore nature and support visual/spacial development. Our "play station" is nature.  Our carefully designed space allows students to create tasks that help them:
- Extend attention span
- Learn through trial and error
- Support appropriate risk taking
- Encourage group participation
- Connect with nature

These life skills form the foundation for a competent, confident future where children can communicate needs and solve problems.

Our school is dedicated to educating children to eliminate:
- Bullying
- Obesity
   - Boredom
