Inclusive Education

For ALL Types of Learners

Mosaic Pathways
Specializing in Supporting Diverse Learners

OUR FOCUS

Big Tree

Mosaic Pathways is an inclusive homeschooling community for all types of learners to engage through natural and experiential education. Learning without barriers supports the needs of both families and students. We embrace whole person development by fostering unique expressive, social, emotional, physical, cognitive, spiritual, and creative abilities. Healthy human development is one of the most important aspects of education. Our approach to education builds from a foundation of trust and respectClose working relationships are built through collaboration and group work.

Education is personal. We recognize each child is on a unique path to growth. Our guidance and support are

customized to individual needs. The direction of learning starts from within, and leads outward. As younger students grow and mature, learning plans are created, independent skills increase, and areas of passion and interests emerge. Instead of tests, students demonstrate their learning by expressing themselves through an infinite variety of methods, whether they use clay, dance, video, presentation, writing, and other methods.

Our students learn in small group, multi-age, and mixed skill-level classrooms. We utilize hands-on learning within monthly themes where core academics (language, writing, math, history, science, the arts, etc.) are interconnected. Individualized supports are incorporated into the program (multimodal communication, sensory modulation, interoception, regulation, social skills, emotional wellness, life skills, etc.).​

Our curriculum centers on the study of people and nature through exploration and literature (read-aloud, audio books) to learn about the world: the people who lived in it (Stories of America and other nations) and where they lived (Historical Landmarks, Architecture, Geography).

Math, language, writing, and science are incorporated within our monthly exploration studies, as well as, the arts (music, visual art, poetry, and nature), puposeful motor (yoga), and individualized accommodations in a sensory-friendly environment.

INCLUSION

Inclusion makes the world more vibrant. We all have things to learn and we all have something to teach. Mosaic Pathways believes in the importance of belonging and work to cultivate an environment where all minds and souls are not just included, but 

feel seen and valued for who they are.

NATURE

Research shows that time spent outdoors can improve attention, decrease stress, increase happiness, and strengthen connections in the brain. Even without the many studies on the benefits of nature, we can all speak to the power in a breath of fresh air, the sun on our face, and the wonders of a hike. Nature presents opportunities to experience the natural world through all the senses. It aids in sensory and emotional regulation, wellness, curiosity and wonder, nurturing ourselves, each other, our planet, and so much more.

Heart-Mind Connection

Learning through the sense of 

wonder ignites imagination.

Imagination is ~

the thinking of the heart

What matters isn't found on a page, but found on the white spaces between the words. Aspects that remain unseen hold more value than what is seen.

Deep learning occurs when touched by emotion as the mind and heart connect.

THE ARTS

We put the heARTS back into education to express unique individuality.

Essential tools and materials are available for creative expression used in any activity. Displaying visual art allows access to be enjoyed through the heart. Our eyes open as we become the thing we gaze upon. Images are long lasting, so we choose images to impress on the heartClassical music is played to equalize and restore our mental, emotional, and physical selves. Harmony and melody holds vibrational benefits which effect our moods.

LITERATURE

Learning and understanding is layered in utilizing classic literature and "Living books" written with purposeful worthy thoughts and inspiring tales of life, filled with gems of wisdom.

Each month we visit new topics for discovery and exploration using poetry, fairy tales, short stories, songs, art, history, biographies, nature, science, and architecture. 

During nature study, students can illustrate and/or write in personal journals about meaningful observations.
