LOCATION & FACILITIES
Not all classrooms have 4 walls.
Our Indoor Classrooms
There will come a time when our classrooms are more closely integrated into an outdoor setting with unlimited nature access. Currently, we are utilizing classrooms at Sanctuary in Coralville, located at 2205 E Grantview Dr. This location is conveniently located just off of Dubuque Street between Iowa City and North Liberty.
Our Nature Classrooms
It doesn't get much better than right here in Eastern Iowa when it comes to access to beautiful and varied natural locations for kids to learn about and explore. Almost daily trips to local nature preserves and locations means kids have experiences that encourage risk taking, creativity, team building, and resilience. Spending time in nature also has long been proven to decrease stress and anxiety.
Our Community Classrooms
Learning doesn't just happen inside classrooms or on nature campuses. Connecting kids to their community and giving them a sense of value and purpose is one of our essential goals at Tamarack. When students experience their communities in action and are allowed to take part in them, they see their place in their world and understand that they have a voice and perspective that matters, now. Rather than classroom teachers needing to be the experts on all things - utilizing experts working in areas of study brings authenticity and a level of knowledge unmatched in a typical classroom setting.
*due to current concerns of community spread of COVID 19, community resources will be utilized with the utmost consideration for safety, and may, at this time be postponed until risk is minimized.
