Workspace Education Tours Available in CT

If you could start from scratch to design the ultimate way to educate our kids, what would it look like? This question was the spark that ignited the concept of Workspace Education. With robust educational experience and training, Workspace Education founder, Catherine Fraise, has created a model for child-centric K-12 education that blends the very best of the most innovative educational paradigms.

At Workspace, foundational literacies are developed through custom curriculums that acknowledge every child’s learning style—paced swiftly when a child feels momentum and slowed when a child is stuck. Days are rich with the benefits of variety and community—sustaining energy levels, feeding active minds, and fostering positive thinking. Kids toggle among STEM activities, Socratic dialogs, and the fine and performing arts. Free time inspires group inventions and spontaneous quests. And, exciting projects that integrate disciplines within the context of collaboration bring the foundational literacies to life and serve to lock in acquired skills in meaningful ways.

I also implore you to check out our website for more information www.workspaceeducation.org

We are located in Bethel, CT. Open invitation for a tour as it’s best to experience in person!

Any questions?! Looking forward to meeting you in August!

LEAD TUTOR, LUMIAR PILOT PROJECT

Part time (3 contact days + 4 hours planning per week during term times)

We are seeking a Lead Tutor to oversee the Lumiar Pilot Project in the UK. This will lead to the opening of an Independent Lumiar School in September 2018. The Pilot Project will start in the second week of September 2017 with up to 15 children aged 5-11 years old.  We are currently confirming the location, which will be around the A36 corridor between Bath and Frome. The work of the Lead Tutor will be supported and overseen by an experienced Board of educators and business people.

This is an exciting and challenging role and will require creative thinking, resourcefulness and tenacity. The role is for someone who is passionate about transforming education, who wants to work with a dynamic and committed group of people to establish a new and innovative approach, and who deeply shares the vision and ethos of the Lumiar Pilot Project.

We are also seeking Masters to lead on specific project based learning as part of the pilot project.  Candidates who are interested in being a Master should write a letter outlining their areas of expertise and why they would be an inspiration for a group of children in leading a specific project.
