Tara’s Place is the Children’s Program at Maitripa College, aligned with the Maitripa College mission of education through wisdom and compassion. Our children’s education program will integrate care for self, care for the environment, positive relationships, and joy as foundations for learning and life.
Tara’s Place Sunday Program:
Tara’s Place Sunday Program is designed for children who accompany their parents to Maitripa College Community teachings on Sunday.
The program will include activities and space design inclusive of a diverse age range of children. Activities take into consideration the ages and stages of the children, providing for their interests and needs and fostering relationships of respect, care, and sharing. The space will be integrated into the Maitripa College existing environment, and organized with care, beauty, and order, encouraging the children to work individually and in groups while respectfully interacting with the space, activities, and one another.
Adult facilitators are trained to prepare the environment, and to build relationships of trust and communication by modeling activities and attitudes and establishing personal connections.
