Being inquisitive and having the courage to inquire is the first step to learning. At Ventana, children have the freedom to be curious and to take time to form and test theories, make mistakes, and share discoveries.



Using many different materials, children at Ventana construct knowledge and communicate visibly what they know, wonder, question, feel, and imagine through their many natural “languages”.



“It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.” – Confucius. Our teachers encourage children to persevere through a difficult task or social situation to develop confidence as learners and build positive relationships with peers now and in the future.



Children hone one of the essential 21st century skills by frequently working in small-groups to practice the art of listening to others’ ideas and justifying their own, testing solution strategies, and discovering the benefit of group over individual contribution to learning
