Our Methods

Pueblo people have always recognized that each individual who enters this world has a gift to share, which is manifested through one’s contribution to the community.

To assist each child in developing his or her potential gift and contribution, the classroom will consist of a prepared environment that will provide learning opportunities in the following areas: language, math, history, geography, zoology, sensorial, practical life, music, art, agriculture, grace and courtesy, peace education, and movement.
