Our Approach

At Brownell Talbot we believe that young students learn most effectively in a secure, age-appropriate environment that encourages exploration and investigation.

Our classrooms and programs inspire confidence and curiosity in the learner. We observe each student develop the enthusiasm and skills that lead to a love of learning through direct teaching and the Project Approach. The Project Approach is a student-selected in-depth study of a particular topic.

Our daily schedule includes time for each student to explore, learn, and grow in his/her own style and pace. Predictable daily routines and instructor-directed group activities begin to prepare students for the school schedule in years to come. We provide challenge when a student is ready to forge ahead and guidance when a student’s skills are still developing.
