1005 Acoma Street, Denver 80204
Founded in the fall of 2018, The Wonder Academy is an independent, locally-owned, urban early childhood school practicing secure attachment and respectful caregiving to children 6 weeks to 6 years of age located in the heart of downtown Denver. Our caregiving model and community are modern and unique. The work of Magda Gerber and Emmi Pickler (RIE), the preschools in Reggio Emilia, Italy and the forest school movement serve as the foundation of our philosophy. We see children of all ages as whole, competent beings, capable of being co-constructors of their learning journey and deserving of respect. Child-led exploration of our indoor and outdoor surroundings, along with thoughtful observation, guided inquiry and open-ended materials, form the basis of our curriculum. We are centrally located at 10th and Acoma and can often be found outside connecting with nature, our community and following our wonderings.
