The program puts meaningful work into the experience of childhood. Teachers, students, parents, and community partners work together to build a functioning miniature society. Following the example and guidance of adults, young people discover the rules of justice and the functions of money, markets, and property. They learn to run businesses, apply technology, develop government and social agencies, and create cultural and arts organizations. At Chocachatti we believe that children learn from doing and we incorporate lessons that develop the whole child.
