BENEFITING: BLUE MAN CREATIVITY CENTER INC
From my school
With tremendous excitement and gratitude, we are delighted to announce Blue School has entered into a contract to purchase the beautiful land-marked building at 241 Water Street. Blue School will now have a permanent home in Lower Manhattan, one block south of the Brooklyn Bridge.
We want to create an educational program where creativity is cherished and encouraged and where children fall in love with the joy of learning. We want to create a healthy, warm, safe, nurturing environment where community is paramount, and where children's interactions between classes is just as important as what happens during classes. We want to create the kind of educational program we wish we'd had for ourselves and dreamed we'd have for our children; a place where people feel like there is genuinely no better place to learn and to grow.
Since first establishing The Blue Man Creativity Center Early Childhood Program, we have been awed and humbled by the enormity of this project and have been blown away by how far it has come so quickly. In undertaking a project of this magnitude, we realized that we needed to balance our outsider's perspective with that of experts from inside the field. To that end, we assembled a team of inspired teachers and consultants to help us realize our vision.
Our program is not for everyone and we are comfortable with that. But if you find that our approach resonates with you, then please contact us. We need families who believe a new approach to education is within our grasp. It will not be easy, and it will require enormous amounts of resourcefulness, will and commitment from all involved - teachers, parents, children and administrators - but we believe that we can create a special school like no other. If you want to be part of turning this vision into reality, then please come join us.
