Welcome to The Unschool

Welcome to The Unschool

The Unschool of San Antonio is a child-centered, nature-based private microschool welcoming children ages four through eight.

We cultivate the happiest, most wholesome parts of childhood – play, fun, nature, laughter, warmth – and offer cutting edge pedagogy centered on the fullness of each child’s humanity.

More about us

Connection, Curiosity, Creativity

Each day, we spread a rich feast of experiential learning and great books before children in order to nurture in each a habit of connection, curiosity, and creativity.

The Unschool of SA inspires children to enjoy and appreciate the natural world through unstructured, uninterrupted play without neglecting academic development.

Our child-centered pace and gentle daily rhythm allows children to be more attentive, more joyful, and less anxious, clearing the mind to develop learning pathways. Children plant gardens, take responsibility for farm animals, observe wildlife, and solve problems they encounter along the way, authentically applying their emerging literacy and numeracy. Our unique approach both guides and follows children, cultivating growth at each child’s natural pace while nurturing their age-appropriate social-emotional and physical development.
