You all know there have been changes brewing at Whole Life Learning Center: a new preschool, a new high school partnership, and now a new campus...
A NEW WLLC CAMPUS! (Read on to find out more about the story and our upcoming Open House!)
On July 1st, we'll be singing happy birthday -
to our new Whole Life Learning Campus at 4105 Manchaca Road.
The location is incredible: on Manchaca just north of Ben White and across from Radio cafe. It's on a 3/4 acre lot with big play yard and a ready-to-roll building.
But let's back up a moment...how's this happening? Why is it happening?
Birthday's start with a love story...
In August of 2010 Michael & Caroline met at a teacher training. They taught at a school called the Austin
EcoSchool (now the Austin Village Academy: AVA). They loved the team, the kids, the community there... And were on fire with vision for the Whole Life Learning Center. So they stepped out on their own and opened the doors to WLLC the next September.
Fast forward: Today, the WLLC community is thriving, growing and serving so many amazing families
We've enjoyed organic growth and are thrilled with the expansion of our school and community thus far. It's allowed us to activate more of our vision without the risks of growing too big, too fast.
A few weeks ago, we were visited by
parents. They recognized our synergistic and aligned approach and encouraged us to connect with AVA's director (and our old friend),
. Well we did!
We discovered that AVA was in transition. As the conversation unfolded it became clear: AVA becoming a Whole Life Learning Center would support them in establishing the solid, caring, wonderful place for learning their families and communities sought.
And it would give WLLC the opportunity to serve more of the excited families on our waiting list, while providing another convenient location in Austin. We're spreading the love! Cheryl, the AVA board, and families were all excited about the transition: an opportunity for organic growth...
a new Whole Life Learning Center campus!
We are so honored and excited that Solomon Masala will be directing our new Central campus, and Cheryl will join him as part of the leadership team. We're building an exciting new team there! Solomon, currently in the San Francisco Bay Area, will relocate with his family to Austin at the end of June.
Come to our New Campus Open House!
Saturday, April 23rd, 11am-1pm. 4105 Manchaca Road.
Meet the new faculty and team, connect with families, ask questions, tour the campus, and hear the vision in person.
We are overflowing with excitement and gratitude as we complete our 5th year and look forward to our next with inspired anticipation.
And we couldn't do this without you. You: our families, our students, our community, our team of Mentors and faculty. It's your constant belief, support, willingness and love that has moved us to this exciting moment. Thank you
As always, we welcome your questions and visits.
