Mission Statement

Pinyon Song's mission is to nurture children in a nature-based learning community, encouraging play and imagination through creative artistic experiences, outdoor walks, songs, stories, and celebrations of the seasons. We will gauge our success on each child's development of gratitude, reverence, wonder, joy, humor and happiness; and we will work to expand our reach to older children, adults and older adults.
