Blackland Prairie Conservatory and Atelier is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation.
We house several educational initiatives.
Blackland Prairie creates an atmosphere that cultivates global citizens, earth stewards, and builds community friendships. The mission is to encourage these children to live and learn (play)fully, (mind)fully, and (art)fully.
We are growing a community.
Blackland Prairie’s preschool program is typical of nature and art based early childhood, with time spent indoors and outdoors in both rain and shine, lots of practical activities like cooking and gardening, story, circle time, arts, and most importantly, self-directed play.
Our grades program includes thematic content design, and seminar/main lesson blocks. Students participate in outdoor programming and integrated arts.
Our integrated arts educators and curators provide provocations, special projects and frameworks once or twice a week. Students have the opportunity to explore and express their viewpoints by utilizing visual arts, performing arts, agricultural arts, and practical arts.
We also celebrate festivals together as a community, and we cultivate a space in which families come together with a commitment to honoring the truly special time that is childhood.
For the 2019-20 school year, we will offer programs for students ages 3.5 years to Grade 3. We also offer caregiver-child playgroups.
Our strategic plan is to grow from preschool-age all the way through high school, by adding a grade or mixed-grades program each year. We are looking forward to high school, where all of the academics and arts training start to overlap and blend together for a truly rewarding educational experience.
