Who are we?

"Play provides the most natural and meaningful process by which children can construct knowledge..." Kathy Walker

Peregrine first opened in 2000 with only 14 students. Since then teachers, parents and students have woven an organic tapestry to become the school we are today. With 120 students from K-10, we are now a much bigger community, but we have learned from challenges, from successes and from each other. We are still a small school, where children spend their days with a team of adults who, over time become their mentors and role models. The school operates on a first name basis and children benefit from the continuity of belonging to one whole group with the same small group of teachers throughout their schooling.

“Every child deserves a champion: an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists they become the best they can possibly be.”
