The Patchwork School is an innovative non-profit organization promoting children’s rights and meaningful educational options for all, at the heart of which is a community-based democratic school for children ages one and up, located in Louisville, Colorado.  By respecting children as people with ideas, interests and opinions, and by utilizing our community’s resources, we have created an experiential learning environment that fosters critical thinking and problem solving, develops communication and leadership abilities, nurture’s self-confidence and self-direction, promotes compassion and sustainability, and most of all preserves a passion for learning.  Through the school, our parent education, teacher training, and community building, we advocate for freedom, responsibility and compassion in community.

Patchwork Is...

Some thoughts from our community from February 2014

A place where I can show up and been seen for who I am.  A loving community. Authentic.  Compassion. The amazing teachers.  Friendship. Support. Outside. Gluten-free snacks and playing with friends. Open. Kind. Connections. Understanding. It feels like great, and like home - it feels like my home. Creation. Fun! A school where we play and have fun.
