Community Integration

“We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men.”

Herman Melville

Being involved in one’s community is part of being a well-rounded, flourishing individual and thus is an important part of our holistic approach.

Through our Building Within the Community Program, children are able to meet local business owners and other important community members we collaborate with. The children also take part in a variety of classes in Oakwood Village including pottery, chocolate-making, flower arranging, gardening, music classes, and more.

We believe community awareness is also environmental awareness. We hold our botany lessons in near-by Cedarvale Park and teach children the importance of caring for the environment. All of the meat and produce in our meal program is organic and/or locally sourced, which also supports local farmers and local businesses.
