Friends of Pisgah Collective

Pisgah Collective’s positive and child-centered programs foster the autonomy, feeling of belonging, respectfulness, and curiosity that creates kind and independent thinkers, which our world needs now more than ever before. We explore nature in every type of weather and season and regularly witness the calm and joy our students experience from such deep connection to their surroundings.

The rate of return on every dollar our society invests in early childhood is substantially higher than almost any other type of investment. The lifelong difference a quality early childhood education provides is vast and deep. From measurable economic and health benefits to much more abstract reports of greater feelings of happiness and ease, there is abundant evidence that the earliest years of life are the most impactful in guiding our development and actions throughout our lives.
