about

Founded in May 2014, we are a growing community of parents, educators, students, and administrators who gather monthly to inspire, support and engage in topics relating to early childhood education and parenting.

 

 

Our Mission:  "We are an open forum for collaborative inquiry, dialogue, and advocacy influenced by

Magda Gerber's Educaring® Approach in Minnesota."

 

Come as you are, whenever you can. Anyone and everyone is welcome!

words from friends

I’m continually enriched and inspired by FORM’s outreach and educational activities, and by the community you have created.  I feel so lucky to have made many “virtual” friends through FORM this year, thanks to the ambassadorship and networking flair of the wonderful Carolyn Paetzel. To me, FORM represents a warm embrace that celebrates the thread that connects us.
