We specialize in social constructivist, reflective and relationship-based pedagogy. In a social constructivist school environment, children and teachers create the school experience collaboratively. With this in mind, we’ve developed a social constructivist consulting program that combines education with reflection. Through a combination of observation, education, discussion, reflection and guided implementation, ONS Consulting helps child care programs of all pedagogies deepen and broaden the school experience for educators, children and families.

As a team, we offer a unique and wide range of skills that allow us to offer support in many different ways. Based on your needs, we will work together to decide what structure works best for you. Whether you are looking for a one time professional development workshop, to grow a specific area of your team's practice, or for a long term, intensive partnership, ONS Consulting is here to support you in your growth. Rates start at $125/hr.

"Simply put, this team and their pedagogy are changing the world for the better. They are humanizing what science confirms is best for our children; marrying intellectual rigor and the warmth we as parents want as a touchstone of our children's young lives. These teachers create a magical world where learning is fun and where childhood is cherished. There is whimsy, beauty, joy, science, and social-emotional mastery. This kind of education with these exceptional people gives them the foundation to do exceptional things, but to do them with joy and humility. There's a beautiful alchemy of feeling deeply seen and respected on one hand, with a sense of oneself as a piece of the community on the other. Imagine a magical hybrid of Ms Frizzle, Mary Poppins, the best therapist, and a really warm hug. These are the educators behind Our Neighborhood School."
