What we're about
Five Creeks Studio is a resource center for self-guided learners in the San Francisco East Bay. We believe that learning takes place most fully and deeply when our whole being is engaged through the sense-experiences of nature, music, movement, and art.
Our mission is to provide a joyful learning environment where our children will reach their highest potential as creative, courageous, and capable thinkers, learners, and leaders.
We believe that teaching and learning should:
• Be meaningful, contextualized, and guided by the interests, readiness, and learning style of each child
• Take place in a beautiful and loving environment that allows for deep and generous attention to each child
• Include significant and meaningful engagement with the natural world and wilderness
• Inspire a sense of social and ethical responsibility toward each other and our community, and of care and stewardship toward the places and things around us
• Emphasize choice, citizenship, responsibility, and democratic decision making
