Kaleidoschool is comprised of education and other professionals who believe there needs to be a systemic change in the education world. We want to effect that change by using the elements of nature, arts, community and well-being to help students, their families, and the community around us.
There are many under served communities in Sacramento...children who suffer from the achievement gap, children who suffer from trauma and/or mental health conditions, children who do not get a chance to express their artistic and music abilities, children who think from "all sides of the brain," and their families, who also need support.
Our techniques to help students bridge the achievement and equity gaps include:
Time in nature
Mindfulness & stress reduction processes
Arts and music exploration
Work with therapeutic animals
Empowerment for children and their families
Engaging academic projects
Mentoring for children and families
Relationships with the community at large
