mission-imageOur Mission

At Big Minds, students are free to design their day, select their activities, and socialize freely. We facilitate projects that are based on the genuine interests of the students and students can choose to participate, or not. They are encouraged to play, generate their own activities, find their own fun, and exercise their imagination. Using a flexible framework, students are guided as they explore their passions, learn to problem-solve, and develop social skills.

Big Minds is designed to help 2e children reach their full intellectual and creative potential, while giving them the necessary skills to be socially competent. Our goal for our students is that they will leave us with five skills: 1) the ability to engage in creative inquiry and investigation; 2) the ability to research and critically analyze others’ research; 3) the ability to communicate well, both orally and in writing; 4) the ability to maintain a clear connection to their passions and areas of strength; and 5) the ability to successfully navigate social interactions.
