An added benefit is Cascade Canyon’s unique learning community: students in grades K-8 travel, perform, play, and celebrate learning together throughout the year. The school also places a strong emphasis on children's social-emotional growth, and provides ample opportunities for cross-age mentorship, guided practice in naming and expressing feelings and needs, and a collaborative, school-wide approach to conflict mediation.

Where Academics and Character Are Classmates: Character Building Tools at Home and at School

November 3, 2016

Marin Horizon School

Marin Mommies presents a sponsored article from Marin Horizon School, which offers education for children from toddler through 8th grade in Mill Valley.

Children as young as two years old are already beginning to build social awareness and an understanding of their place in the world. Parents often chose schools with strong character-building programs, like Marin Horizon, because they value having their children educated in a culture of integrity, respect, and responsibility. It is in the heartfelt partnership between parents and schools that children are taught the core values and skills that create strong character.

A Relevant Education in a Nurturing Environment

July 25, 2016

Caulbridge School Marin Mommies presents a sponsored article from the Caulbridge School in Fairfax.

Learning is a natural process when you integrate nature, arts, movement, friendship and academics. We believe children learn best with structure, warmth and encouragement. Children do not learn when they feel disengaged, anxious and unsafe, or when the classroom environment is overrun with distraction. Our teachers develop genuine relationships with students because children learn about respect by being respected.

Caulbridge School is committed to courageous learning and positive self-concept along with academic strength. We intentionally focus on courageous learning as a student outcome because the ability to step outside of one’s comfort zone relates to success in academics, relationships and life. We believe that in times of increased stress or challenging situations, positive self-concept serves as a source of resiliency and compassion for self and others. By positive self-concept we mean the ability to evaluate oneself in positive and self-affirming ways across situations and contexts, even when falling short of one’s expectations or hopes; the ability to demonstrate pro-social behavior, ethical decision-making, and a striving for genuine and caring relationships.

Culture, Community, and Play: Lycée Français de San Francisco Brings a New Playground to Sausalito

November 3, 2014

Lycée Français de San FranciscoMarin Mommies presents a sponsored article from Lycée Français de San Francisco, which offers preschool and K–8 education at its Marin County campus in Sausalito. To learn more, visit the school online at lelycee.org.

The beginning of this school year marked a milestone for the Lycée Français de San Francisco’s campus in the Ebbtide neighborhood of Sausalito. The French immersion primary school started classes in in the fall of 2013, but the will and generosity of its parent community, along with the collaboration of Sausalito City Council, culminated this past September in the final touches on a playground that can be shared by children throughout Southern Marin.

The days are starting to edge towards a Bay Area winter, but the sun still shines brightly off the yellows and greens of the school’s play structure. LFSF boasts a strong community of families, and their dedication to their school and its new location brought this private and public space to fruition. The pride and personal investment of parents and classes is displayed on the colorful tile wall that runs along the playground’s northwest side.
