This school year, junior and senior kindergarten classrooms will extend to the great outdoors.
Strongly inspired by the Reggio Emilia educational approach, the grounds at our 1547 N. Dearborn building were transformed into a creative and collaborative outdoor environment that nurtures students’ innate sense of curiosity and discovery. This year, JK and SK students will get to experience all that the Greenwood Learning Garden has to offer, including an art wall, raised planting beds and a performance area. Learning activities in the garden will be regularly scheduled for JK and SK students, however, lower school students in grades 1-4 will also use the garden to enhance units of study. Named after Latin's Assistant Head of School Shelley Greenwood, this exciting new space was made possible by philanthropic efforts from members of the Latin community.
