Shirley G Moore Lab School 5

Posted August 26, 2016
- a parent
I look back to the early years and the Italian based pedagogy of child directed /teacher guided in depth learning , and realize what a gift that was for the child and parenting. The practice of authentic play, of tactile and visual school experiences, the value of being outdoors and exploring elementary physical science concepts, of making music and reading imaginative stories, all set a tone for engaged wholesome parenting and joy of learning. We were fortunate to have teachers who knew and worked with the late Shirley Moore. Its unfortunate that primary, middle and senior high schools don't take inspiration... Generations of University area families have attended and returned. For highly inquisitive and curious children with a sincere and joyous desire of learning, the Lab School is hard to beat. Hard to say if the joy to families has changed with parent preference for full time day care over a educational partnership with nursery school and home, but it was a vital and roaring community when mine was there a decade ago. Parents appreciated the morning health strep check and before class (and as needed) hand washing habit - a quick easy practice with real reduction in illness and absence. The learning report prepared for each young graduate off to Kindergarten guided our educational choices for years and is still accurate. I'll never forget one of the original instructor stated "The Lab School was made for a child like yours" because our daughter never quit smiling and exploring. I only regret there wasn't space available four years earlier for our eldest
