Our Mission: To Unleash Every Child’s Superpowers

We are looking for incredibly warm and passionate teachers who have a profound respect of education, understanding that we have as much to learn from children as they have to learn from us.

WeGrow educators personalize curriculum for each child based on their needs, interests, and aptitudes.

Program Description

WeGrow is committed to supporting growth in children’s minds, bodies, and souls through an integrated, individualized curriculum that challenges and elevates all aspects of the child. Our learning originates from each child’s passions and is hands-on and project-based, drawing from progressive educational pedagogies, such as Montessori, Waldorf, and Reggio Emilia. Our goal is to create conscious global citizens, who know who they are, understand their gifts, and approach life with wonder, joy, humility, and a profound desire to share. With a focus on studying life through spirituality, farming as a way to respect and understand the planet, and yoga, meditation, and conscious eating as tools to center our bodies, we delve deeply into cultivating the whole child. Language and STEAM are taught and emphasized as ways to further connect with the world. WeGrow supports the growth of our children’s entrepreneurial spirits through initiatives such as a school-run farmer’s market as well as a collaboration with WeWork. As we begin to identify our students’ passions, they will be paired with employees and members under whom they can apprentice.
