It is a pleasure to have this opportunity to share with you, today, a bit about sunny-side-up-mama sponsor, Wishing Well School. Born out of the truest intentions to bring a three-fold education, that of the head, heart, and hands, to the children of California's central coast community, Wishing Well a Waldorf-inspired Education, was formed. Now three years later, with a strong, enthusiastic, and fast growing, group of families, the school is moving to a new home.
As with any move to a new home there is much to be done prior to official move in day, or in this case, the start of a new school year. Many mothers, fathers, and children have come together to lend their talented hands in the creation of a beautiful space for the children.
The children are visibly excited about their new school. Those that have attended previous years, feeling already securely held in the school community, are as enthusiastic and proud as any other. Happy to lend a helping hand in this project, and play the rest of the time, the children are becoming comfortable with their new school-home, while building a connection to the space as their friends and families work side by side, to ready it for their official arrival.
The walls are in the process of being painted in the method of Lazure, which takes a great deal of time and talent, but will no doubt foster a wonderful atmosphere, full of depth and life, inside the classroom.
(More about the process of Lazure painting to come.)
(natural beeswax crayons with their sweet aroma and stunning color being cleaned and sorted for the coming year.)
A strong preference for natural materials is exhibited in all phases of the school construction. From the crayons to the cubbies, and curtains, the connection to nature through the once living materials is palpable.
(Paint jar holders being cleaned and sanded for a new year of color experience thorough wet-on-wet watercolor painting.)
(cubbies being sanded down to natural wood.)
(new cubbies, garden beds, tables, signs, play structures, and more, in the making.)
I am taken by the care and love that is being put into each and every detail of this space, but beyond the incredible attention to quality and detail here, I am taken by the dedication of this community. Through the sizable task of moving and growing a school, a strong community is also in the making.
