"I never teach my pupils; I only attempt to

provide the conditions in which they can learn."

- Albert Einstein

“I'm so grateful for what you are offering my kids. They LOVED today sooo much! My son was hesitant to go for the first time, and when I asked him about it afterward, he said "I didn't like it... (dramatic pause) I LOVED it!”. I asked if they had a recess time, and my daughter said ‘Recess would have been a waste! it's too much fun!!’

************************

The most important lesson a child can

learn is to love learning.

*******************

"I had the privilege of attending Wildwood as a child, an experience that shaped me as a lifelong learner. When I was 10, Terry welcomed me into a world of curiosity and wonder. She encouraged her students to follow our own natural desire to learn and explore, and supported our grandiose plans to plant gardens and make films. This support allowed me and the other Wildwood students to turn our playful, far-fetched dreams into reality and taught me that far-flung ideas aren’t always out of reach. The most important lesson that I learned from Terry was how to find joy in learning."
