Scissortail Children's School is different. Our school is unique in its mission to provide a new destination for young children, rising above societal norms for education and creating a collaborative learning community where relationships can develop and thrive. Exploration is encouraged, and higher-order learning processes are developed and sustained. We believe that experiences early in a child's life have a substantial impact on their disposition towards learning. We believe that a respectful, holistic approach to childhood will provide children opportunities to learn much more than rote skills and procedural routines. We advocate for high-quality early learning experiences so that children can achieve their full, individual potential.
