Blackland Prairie Conservatory and Atelier is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation.
We house several educational initiatives.
Our primary initiative is to establish, operate, and maintain a day school dedicated to the education and enrichment of children. The mission is to encourage these children to live and learn (play)fully, (mind)fully, and (art)fully.
By specializing in Waldorf-inspired learning and other emergent curriculum theories, Blackland Prairie will create an atmosphere that cultivates global citizens, earth stewards, and builds community friendships.
We are growing a community.
For the 2017-18 school year, we offer programs for students ages 2.5 years to Grade 2. We also offer caregiver- child playgroups. Currently, we are working on a nursery program for 6 weeks to walking age; and a bridge program for walkers to 2.5 years of age.
Our strategic plan is to grow from nursery age all the way through high school, by adding a grade or mixed grades program each year. We are really looking forward to high school where all of the academics and arts training really starts to overlap and blend together for a truly rewarding educational experience.
We are developing curriculum.
Adult classes and workshops in the arts, lifestyle, parenting, and outdoor adventures are in the development stages. Please let us know what you would like to see!
We are building relationships.
We partner with community organizations to be able to provide our programming to area schools and non profit organizations through grants and scholarships.
