Multi-Age Education for the 21st Century
Wildflower School is a program choice within School District 8 (Kootenay Lake) featuring multi-age classrooms and theme-based learning. At our Nelson campus, we have students from Kindergarten through grade 9; In Creston, we have students from Kindergarten through grade7.
The goal of the Wildflower curriculum and environment is to encourage self-esteem, self-confidence and joy of learning. The multi-age setting provides opportunities for leadership, interdependence, mentor-ship, and personalized learning. The classroom communities are nourished through daily circle time, place based learning opportunities, collaborative group learning, individual inquiry, and an emphasis on problem-solving and critical thinking.
