Our aim is to enrich and enlarge the hearts and minds of our students with a variety of hands-on experiences that we believe will ignite within them a passion for learning. We have seen this goal regurgitated on various school websites: “to ignite a love of learning within our students,” and after visiting and watching and eagerly anticipating what these organizations had to offer, we generally ended up a bit deflated. How do you ignite someone’s mind? How do you awaken a child’s soul to learning? These are lofty goals, and we don’t believe in mouthing off about them here at Reedy Creek. The experiences below are meant to help your student find meaning in life, grow in manual dexterity with interesting handwork, learn how to stretch their minds by following detailed directions and creating real world items with their own hands, learn to read for deep meaning, exercise their minds and bodies, and find meaningful connections with the people and things of the past. This is the 21st century. Our children are not meant to be trapped for hours upon hours in meaningless work, meant to adapt them for factory work to bring in money as an adult. We know life is meant to be far more meaningful than that. What if, on a daily basis, a child learns that there is wonder around every corner, that work produces beauty and depth of thought can change a nation? Now that is something worth learning.
