This year has made it clear that the time has come for Tara to accommodate more preschool and elementary children.

As we prepare for Fall 2022, we ask our community to join together in supporting the school, our deserving students, and our dedicated faculty and staff. Our goal is to reach $350,000 before April 18 at midnight. Join us today with a gift of any size or make a monthly gift to provide sustained support to expand our classrooms and help us make this dream come true for the benefit of many more children now and in the years to come. 

Tara Redwood School is not only special for the extraordinary natural environment on the 108 acres of redwood forests and sunny meadows bordering Nisene Marks State Park in Santa Cruz, but also for our unique education…an integrated curriculum of Montessori and our international program, Creating Compassionate Cultures (CCC). CCC is a whole child program developed at the school since its inception, more than 30 years ago. It draws from latest scientific research and ancient wisdom traditions such as mindfulness. We are a Universal Education partner program, and interns from around the world visit and learn from our model.

We appeal to you to become part of this vision and offer any amount you can. 

Thank you!
