About

Our learning environment is informed by several educational and psychological models, including CASEL’s model of core competencies; the older, but still timely educateur model; and more recent thinking in play therapy and mindfulness.  In addition to our founder Mike Langlois’ work and writing, we draw inspiration from other thinkers in psychology and ludology such as Peter Gray, Johan Huizinga, James P. Carse, and Bernard Suits.
