I came to know Diane and Another Way School in 2010/2011 as a consultant working closely with the Board and personally with Diane. We rewrote the bylaws, examined all relationships, found new teachers and board members, developed new parent, student, and staff manuals and looked to the future with fund development programs. It is now time to revisit the foundation laid and find Another Way.
The intense challenges with COVID-19 have provided an opportunity for taking the next leap into Another Way's best future. My partner, Andras Maros, and I have relocated here to support Another Way Lab School and Community Center... moving forward in a good way together. Andras' film making and acting skills have shown how we create our future through inspired imagination.
We have several programs that are the basis of a Natural Educational Plan:
- SUMMER NATURE PROGRAM: 6/22/2020 through 8/13/2020 for ages 3-12 with small group activities outside ~ in Nature with Friluftsliv, Montessori in the Wild, the Nature of Horses, Living History, Art Therapy, and more.
- FUTUREMENTORY FILM LAB: 7/7/2020 through 8/13/2020 for teens in a small group ~ a deep exploration into self-knowledge where students experience the truth of who they are and how to express in the world... Mentoring themselves into their own best future with acting and filmmaking skills.
- TEACHER TRAINING CERTIFICATION: Another Way School is already an approved Montessori Teacher Training site and we will expand upon that designation with a dynamic program that brings Another Way Certification to new Mentors and Teachers.
- COMMUNITY CENTER: Lifelong learning for all ages is explored with a variety of special and ongoing programs being developed for fall 2020.
- ANOTHER WAY LEARNING PORTAL: Creating a web based program to reach students across the world and provide guidance for Natural Learning and connection with the world around them. This project in development will change the way we see education and bring Indigenous Wisdom from the Elders into a curriculum for living as a natural human.
Now is the moment and WE are the Ones that will take a flying leap into the future as we watch the next generation of children blossom ~ and nurture them along the way.
If you or someone you know would like to enroll students in the 2020 Nature Program or FutureMentory Film Lab, please contact us.
If you know the value of these programs and want to continue to support the future of Another Way Lab School & Community Center, please give here. With your blessings and gifts, we will be able to continue offering dynamic programs such as the Horse Program to future children.
We also welcome your shared wisdom, whether with the children in the program or through the Community Center class scheduling. We are certain that you will also enjoy the variety of classes we have to offer in the coming weeks and months.
