"Learning may, even with little children, lay open the substance of truth that nourishes the spirit, and yet the forms of knowledge be observed and cultivated and that growth may be genuine and thorough, and yet a delight." - John Dewey

 The Hayground School strives to provide an educational environment whereby children:

  • Become immersed in complex and meaningful activities
  • Develop a sense of purpose
  • Acquire an eagerness for knowledge and the ability to get it
  • Think about things fully
  • Become good at things
  • Contribute to one's community
  • Appreciate and understand those who are different from you
  • Read for pleasure and for information
