Our PROPS partner this month is Austin EcoSchool. Working to provide children an emotionally safe and stimulating environment in which to explore their interests and express themselves, this non-profit alternative K-8th grade school is in it’s ninth year in Austin. One of the key curricula is a “life in miniature” program called Village that gives young people the opportunity to experience the dynamics of the adult world and the tools we use to operate within it. Here is my favorite quote from their great website:
“Childhood is not preparation for life, childhood is life. A child isn’t getting ready to live, a child is living.”
PROPS to EcoSchool!
