Dig in and take a closer look at the U School Lexicon. The micro-language presented in this book is the tool we use to accelerate children’s social/emotional skill building, and to master our own verbal habits among the children in our care. The U School Lexicon is available for sale on a pay-what-you-can basis (with a suggested value of $40).

The U School Lexicon is here!

This book contains a vocabulary which keeps our daily conversations with children firmly anchored in the U School’s ideals. The Lexicon helps people understand how they can be powerful problem solvers, helps children and grown-ups communicate with less friction, and supports social-emotional development and executive function.

Rigamajig (something we’d love to have and on our wish list). Learn more about the incredible play designer Cas Holman and watch her on the Netflix Series “Abstract – The Art of Design”
“When I design toys I want children to create from their imagination rather than following instructions… My work as a designer is to give them these tools so that they are free to imagine, explore ideas and invent new things.” – Cas Holman

U School October Soirée!

Our annual Ocotober Soirée is a gathering for our whole community—families, board members, community partners, supporters of the U School, and anyone interested in learning about us.

This year we get the added bonus of celebrating our most recent expansion. The U School has doubled in size and we’d love for all to see our new space!

This is not a children’s play event, but it is family friendly. Come for some light food, beverages, company and conversation. Check out our school and find out what the children have been up to. Looking forward to seeing you there!

When: Thursday, October 10, 2019 7-9pm
Where: The U School

It helps us to know who is planning on attending the October Soirée. However, if you show up without an RSVP we will still be super happy to see you, no worries there. Please RSVP here.

Spring 2019 Outdoor & Handy Folk Work Day

It’s time to gather together again…to roll up our sleeves (maybe grab those mud boots) and prep the outdoor space for a stellar Spring/Summer season. Especially exciting this time around: PREPPING OUR EXPANDED OUTDOOR SPACE. We’ll be spring cleaning, planting perennials and annuals, sprucing up our sand area, and creating a super fun environment in our expansion area. Please join us! Come one, come all. The weather forecast looks great.

Saturday, April 27, 10am-2pm. Come when you can.
