The Real orld of Childrens 'Commui
The Children's Community School, an educational
experiment in freedom and integration for young
children, is now raising funds to purchase facili-
ties adequate for approximately 100 children in
the first through sixth grades.
The Children's Community provides an environ-
ment of freedom, so that children are able to do
things that are of interest to them. Many differ-£t
ent adults in the classroom, and frequent trips
into the community allow children to experience ° 2
a world that is much more real and exciting than *
that which is traditionally available in the public
schools.
A belief that learning is a very natural kind of
growth, and that children will be happier and more
self-confident if their desires are respected and z
N {supported by adults is the model which the Chil-
dren's Community puts forth as an alternative to
planned curricula, work-books and an authori-
tarian teacher-student relationship.t
For the Children's Community to be a success
it must find its support within the community
/ ~it serves.t
Upcoming events, planned to help raise the
$30,000 necessary to operate in 1968-69, are today's
Bucket Drive, and a Kids' Benefit Concert at Can-
terbury House, on Tuesday, March 26, at 8:30 p.m.;
F admission is $1.50 and the Prime Movers, the Ron........."Y
Brooks Jazz Trio, and the Random Canyon Civic
Betterment Association will perform.
