Making childhood a journey, not a race
We’re proud of our campus, our school, and our teachers. With almost two full acres of campus in residential Oakland, we have plenty of open spaces and green grass for running and playing. We have planted fruit trees, indigenous plants, vegetables and flower beds, to attract butterflies, bees and other insects. We raise bees that make us honey. Children learn to harvest fruits and vegetables and to cook and share food with family and friends.
The “GLM village” is a place where children can learn and grow, all while developing strong, loving and respectful relationships with their peers and school adults. This is “personalized education” at it’s best, fostering resilience, creativity, collaboration and a love of life-time learning. Come and see for yourself, what we mean when we say: we are “helping to make childhood a journey, not a race.”

Those Rainy Days
El Niño is bringing us some significant rain which California so desperately needs. Even though the heavy rain can pose some challenges, we all enjoy walking through the huge puddles with our rain boots and the nice smell after one of these showers. There are also a lot of things children wonder about … like “Why do I see myself in the water”.
