Beginning Sunday, October 6, 2019, Maitripa College is very happy to announce the opening of our very first opportunity designed especially for children. We invite you to Tara’s Place: a prepared environment in which the youngest among us can play and learn and grow. This space is being created by experienced early childhood educators from Maitripa College who have long aspired to develop a place where children may receive the best possible conditions to develop their innate goodness, in an environment of beauty, serenity, and joy. 

What Is Tara’s Place?

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.

General Description:

Tara’s Place at Maitripa College offers a specially prepared environment in which children of different ages can participate in their own process of learning by actively engaging in all activities provided and modeled by prepared adult facilitator guides.

Important Notes and Requirements:

1. Tara’s Place is not a religious program or a “Sunday School”, and religion will not be taught the children.

2. Pre-registration is required for your child to attend Tara’s Place. We have limited spaces available, so drop-in’s cannot be cared for. Please email to secure your space.

3. Children must be walkers and fully potty-trained to attend Tara’s Place.
