About Holly Pond School

Its mission is to foster the growth of independent and confident scholars who respect themselves and others through active learning experiences that extend their knowledge in the classroom and beyond. The learning environment at the Holly Pond School is experiential, interactive, and collaborative, with an emphasis on educating the whole person— fostering the intellectual, socio-emotional, and physical growth of each child. We plan and follow a consistent schedule daily with learning goals in mind. This helps children feel secure (because they know what comes next) and independent (because they move from one activity to another easily and confidently). http://www.darien-ymca.org/our-school/.
