Vegan Preschool & Kindergarten to Open in Cincinnati Next Year
Heärt Montessori, a new private school that will “prioritize empathy and compassion, intertwined with core academics,” is set to launch its inaugural pre-school and kindergarten learning group in Cincinnati in January 2018, which includes plant-based local organic lunches.
Founded by Caroline Caldwell, Anna Ferguson, Brett Hornberger, Nayana Shah and Mark Stroud, the school will “educate children in a typical Montessori style, with an emphasis on developing higher self-esteem and high self-acceptance through yoga, meditation, mindfulness, art and music.” Part of that education includes sustainability and compassion, with Soap Box Media noting:
“Heärt will provide healthy, organic, plant-based lunches and snacks for its students using the produce from the school’s garden. Mark Stroud, one of the founders, is an acclaimed vegan chef who will prepare the nutritious meals.”
Parents can check out the school’s upcoming Open House dates here, or schedule a private tour.
