The Children's School Of Boise

  • The Children's School of Boise is an independent, non-profit institution.
  • It was founded in 1980 for children 3 to 8 years old as an educational program which emphasizes self-discovery of the world as the most important teacher.
  • Affective (emotional) development is seen as equally important to cognitive (thinking) development.
  • Both function simultaneously to determine what is learned. Since the early 1900's this approach, known as Developmental Interaction, has evolved through research and analysis at Bank Street College of Education in New York City.
  • It is a coherent integration of developmental psychology, cognitive theory and educational theory and practice.
  • The mission of The Children's School of Boise, Inc., is to enhance human development by supporting children, during their childhood years, as they experience themselves as capable learners.
  • The school will provide a developmentally and educationally sound program for children through age 8.
  • In its actions, the school will serve as a community advocate for the whole and healthy development of children and families, and as a progressive educational model.
