del Sol’s Program is

based on the assumption that children are important people. We believe children have a right to be nurtured by teachers who honor them for who they are — unique, creative individuals, capable & powerful, loving & giving, possessing a sense of wonder, curiosity, desire, excitement, a thirst for meaning, learning, and joy in living.

We Know

from our own experience and from child development theorists, that children are impelled to learn — most effectively by doing and reflecting upon it. Knowledge is not something that is given to children, but is actually constructed by the individual child through playful and purposeful interactions.

del Sol is

a school which truly applies the principles it talks about. Other schools may say the same things, but there is a big difference between them and del Sol.

Hands down, del Sol is the only school for us. It’s a gem — hidden from most, but a treasure to those of us who are fortunate enough to have found it.
