The Blue Lion curriculum is based on the understanding that early childhood is the ground, the foundation of experience in a precious human life. This is precisely when so much is learned in such a brief period of time.

Children’s play is serious work where the children are exploring, learning and acquiring all the soft skills, like adaptability, communication, critical thinking, executive function, problem solving, conflict resolution, time management and self-regulation, just to name a few, that are essential life skills. These soft skills are the foundation for success in later academic learning as well as the keys to an overall fulfilling and meaningful life.

The goal of the Blue Lion curriculum is to create an early childhood setting that fosters development of these soft skills and is steeped in an understanding of how to live in harmony and balance, with self and others, rooted in the teachings and practices of the Buddhist tradition.

The Blue Lion curriculum pedagogy is constantly evolving with the aid of doctoral level research, artists’ and gardeners’ hands and eyes as well as the teachers’ presence and guidance.
