Kumara School

Mill Valley, CA, 94941-0949
     Tel: (415)388-5437
Grades: K - 1 | 15 students
At Kumara School, we use childrens' interests and the ideas of developmentally appropriate practice to create a play-based, meaningful curriculum that involves the whole child.
What makes our school so special is the feeling of trust in the individual, each finding their own path through flexibility and freedom in order to know they’re wonderful just the way they are.
We believe there is a force, spirit, inner self or whatever you want to call it, which guides us.
We need to take the time to tune in to ourselves, find what really interests us and from there decide what to do.
When we are following this inner guide, we will naturally be powerful, healthy, motivated, happy and caring for other people and our whole planet.
