Brownstone Day School's philosophy is an approach aimed at instilling our early learners with tools needed to thrive in a brilliantly unpredictable world. Charles Abbot of the University of Chicago has said "There are no aims of education. The aim is education." Brownstone's staff understands that it is vital to recognize that it is not necessarily the product but the process that arms us with knowledge strength, inner beauty and resilience. It’s our thought that through freedom, flexibility & creativity that our children will have learned how to keep learning throughout their lives, so that they can participate in a dynamic, changing society. Brownstone governs itself through reason and truth. Our most important goal is to continuously develop and sustain our program through the voices of our children, parents, staff, committed educational professional programs & community. We recognize that interests, strengths, doubt and disputation are imperative to improving quality of life and functional polity. At Brownstone, we believe that practicing and modeling these methods and this philosophy we set the future for our children and ourselves to be life learners.
