The first years at ROBS hum with learning moments, from the carefully planned to the wondrously serendipitous. Whether she’s building a story with her friends, noticing the differences between rosemary and thyme in the courtyard, or learning about oviparous animals like the robins outside the classroom window, your child’s curiosity is flourishing. She’s also fashioning intellectual, emotional, and spiritual connections, one glorious discovery at a time. From the earliest grades forward, ROBS master teachers help children shape these discoveries–so they aren’t simply fascinated by something they see; they are beginning to construct a framework of understanding to build upon throughout their lives. A childhood of purposeful play begets a lifetime of learning.

Kind Friends

What makes ROBS friendships so enduring? Perhaps it’s the shared experiences that begin in the miniature vine-covered house in our courtyard. Maybe it’s teachers imparting social skills like taking turns and using good manners. It could be the character lessons on patience and kindness, or the spiritual messages about emulating...
