TK through 5 Grade


The elementary school years should offer both strong academic focus and an environment for inspiration and discovery. Tara Redwood School has a curriculum that not only nurtures the creative and the scientific modes of learning, but it emphasizes open-ended activities for social and emotional growth, through exploration of the inner world of thought and emotion. It is an education for the heart and mind.


Ages 3 to 5 and a half


Situated in 108 acres of forest and sunny open spaces, the Redwood Campus is home to our Preschool classrooms. The  Elementary Program is hosted in the “Village Campus”, right out of the heart of Soquel Village.We are a pilot school for the Creating Compassionate Cultures (CCC) Institute, which was founded by Pam Cayton in 1989.
