School Notes

  • At Overfield, we believe that children enter the world with:
  • inquisitiveness, inventiveness and individuality.
  • We foster their inquisitiveness with an emerging curriculum that draws on children's natural curiosities.
  • We encourage their inventiveness by offering problems to solve and materials to explore in open-ended ways.
  • By encouraging their relationships with other children, teachers and families, we support their understanding of their own individuality, and of themselves as part of an interconnected community.

Overfield is amazing! Because of the nurturing staff and the beautiful natural environment and location, my children have thrived here. My son asks every day if he gets to go to school today and is disappointed when he doesn't! A truly Reggio Emilia inspired environment. There is NOTHING else that compares to this Gem!

Overfield is a wonderful place for young children to learn and explore their creative sides. I would recommend to anyone with kids from 18 months to 6 years of age. Our daughter is in the first year there, but asks to go to school everyday (even though she goes once a week). We could not be more pleased. Best school in area by FAR!
