THREE PILLARS THAT DRIVE LEARNING AT CHILDREN'S SLC

Crafts in Education

Personalized and Self-Directed Learning

This pillar intentionally puts students at the center of the learning experience and guides them to see and value themselves, own their experience, and become lifelong learners. The world as it is demands individuals who demonstrate agency and can manage and direct themselves...

Downtown Salt Lake Library

Inclusive and Collaborative Learning

This pillar fosters empathy and the ability to work as a team (cooperation). Cohorts and teams are the practice, no longer the exception. The ability to collaborate well is one of the most sought-after skills in education and the workplace and is therefore paramount to our children’s success...

Place-Based and Experiential Learning

The third pillar cultivates an approach to learning that creates authentic and engaging learning experiences by employing the power of place.  At CSLC, the classroom is not confined to walls—it is the world around us. Understanding place begins with understanding self... 

PRINCIPLES OF LEARNING

Math

Learning Math is Vital

Without mathematics, there's nothing you can do. Everything around you is mathematics. Everything around you is numbers.

- Shakuntala Devi

Science

To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle, requires creative imagination and marks real advance in science.

-Albert Einstein

Reading

Learning on the bus

A truly good book teaches me better than to read it. I must soon lay it down, and commence living on its hint. What I began by reading, I must finish by acting.

-Henry David Thoreau

Projects

School Arts and Crafts

Your first projects aren't the greatest things in the world, and they may have no money value, they may go nowhere, but that is how you learn.

-Steve Wozniak

Play

Wilderness classroom

Leave all the afternoon for exercise and recreation, which are as necessary as reading. I will rather say more necessary because health is worth more than learning.

-Thomas Jefferson

"It seems so simple to give a child what they need at the time you discover the need."

- Libbi Malmborg, Founder / Director, Children's SLC
