"The best education does not happen at a desk, but rather engaged in everyday living - hands on, exploring, in active relationship with life." - Vince Gowmon

“Children more than ever, need opportunities to be in their bodies in the world – jumping rope, bicycling, stream hopping and fort building. It’s this engagement between limbs of the body and bones of the earth where true balance and centeredness emerge.” ~ David Sobel


Our daughter has been at the Infant House for a year, and we feel so grateful to have found such a wonderful and caring community at Tumbleweed. Our daughter loves the time she spends at Tumbleweed, and the relationships she has formed with her teachers and the other children in her cohort are so special. We absolutely love how much time the children spend outside, rain or shine. Tumbleweed has a large outdoor area with a mud kitchen, room to run and ride bikes, and an extensive garden that the children help with throughout the year. The food program is exceptional and often includes produce from the garden prepared by the teachers. The teachers are highly trained in the RIE philosophy, and we see everyday how hard they work to nurture the children and expose them to new activities and new ideas. Our daughter’s teacher has been an amazing resource when we have child development questions. I highly recommend Tumbleweed!
