The work of childhood is to grow. In size, knowledge, confidence, empathy—in every dimension, all the time.
Nestled in 12 acres of woods and meadows in Bellevue, The Little School provides a natural setting for our community of students and educators to nurture potential while exploring the wider world. We strive to provide a safe environment to build upon the inherent strengths of each child and support them as they expand their knowledge, build their skills, and deepen their empathy.
Students at The Little School develop confidence in themselves as learners and as active participants in the world. Their ability to initiate and follow through on ideas and ask questions is supported; their lively imaginations, self-expression, and creative and cognitive abilities are cultivated. The environment of respect in our classrooms helps students develop a strong individual voice and an appreciation for the opinions and experiences of others.
The Little School’s results speak for themselves: students become confident self-advocates with sophisticated problem-solving skills and empathy for those who look or think differently. The foundation provided by The Little School positions your child for success in their next school, in their future career, and in life.
Come see why The Little School has been a leader in progressive education since 1959.
