Nestled at the base of Alderfer/Three Sisters 800 Acre Park, Creative Bridges, is a center for self-directed learning in Evergreen, CO. We serve school age children by providing them with the tools to take learning into their own hands with adults that help them discover, appreciate and develop their own rhythms.
We offer a creative space, caring facilitators, resources, peer groups and a model for children who simply need to be who they are, in an environment that nurtures and challenges them, with peers that accept them, immersed in a culture of learning. We believe that traditional schools target one dimension of the child; that is academic. At Creative Bridges, we are aware that the child comes to us with an array needs and skills and it is up to them along with their parents to determine what they want to focus on. Most often, this is not something the child speaks. Our facilitators, along with partnership with parents, watch for joys, issues, and awarenesses to arise and then facilitate growth/movement around that. For more information on facilitation, please click on the "What is a facilitator" tab.
For some, it's learning to communicate more effectively. For others, it's learning how to be in a group setting. For older kids, it's finding a peer group that accepts them to be the truest version of themselves. Because we have a low facilitator/child ratio, we are participating in their games, in their projects and discussions. As a result, we can work through issues as they arise. We operate in an atmosphere of trust, freedom, responsibility, respect, and democracy.
All of our learners must be registered home schooled students. Each child's education is as unique as the child. Some do curriculum either online or at home, while others view the world as their classroom.
