Nestled at the base of Alderfer/Three Sisters 800 Acre Park, in Evergreen, Colorado, Creative Bridges, A Self Directed Learning Center, offers a model for registered home schooled children who simply need to be who they are, in an environment that nurtures and challenges them, with peers that accept them, adults that help them discover, appreciate, and develop their own rhythms, while immersed in a culture of learning.
We currently serve kids ages 6 up to 14 in a fluid, mixed age environment. This is a child-centered program with no required curriculum. We allow children to grow whatever they need to be each day. We do however, have required service learning two days per week (Wednesday and Friday). Children are required to give back to the community through farm chores. We have partnered with a farm across the road and for about 30 minutes to an hour each Wednesday and Friday, we do chores that the kids choose to do. We work with each child to determine what they feel confident at giving. Examples might be walking the dogs, or brushing the horses, or stacking hay or sweeping the house. It is a wonderful relationship that the kids have grown into and they very much enjoy going.
