Raintree School is a private Reggio-inspired Forest School serving two to eight year olds in St. Louis. The Reggio approach holds that children are driven by their interest to understand and know more, and able to learn their place in the world through their interactions with others and with an environment filled with natural light, order and beauty. As a Forest School, Raintree’s goal is that students develop civic character, sense of place, and depth of knowledge through inquiry-based thinking and student driven projects within the context of nature. It is a school founded on the premise that civically-minded outdoor, experiential education is a vehicle for change.
