A note from our founders:
Our love for children and desire to prepare, inspire and expose others to the beauty of our world, naturally led us both to a career in education.
In the classroom, you are given a front row seat to observe how unique each student is and how they each have different needs, ways of thinking, and interests.
We also noticed that the world around us is changing and this generation of students has had to be adaptable to new challenges.
The idea for The ColLab started with a conversation about our desire to fill the gaps and find solutions for the needs of our students. We want to prepare them for the world they live in, however, we felt like there was never enough time in the school day to accomplish all that we wanted to.
The ColLab was our way of solving this problem. We want to focus on filling these gaps and supporting students in the specific areas they need. We want to give students a place to explore their interests and prepare them for the modern day world around them. We want to set them up for success in their future that goes beyond the 7 hour school day.
- Megan & Landyn
The mission of The ColLab is to promote academic, emotional, and social development of our community members through a series of one hour sessions. These engaging programs will work to close the gaps or develop skills outside of the traditional classroom setting. We also aspire to create a community of incredible teachers that inspire the next generation. We believe in education, which gives us the knowledge to work wisely and to train our minds and hands to work skillfully!

Co-founders, Megan and Landyn's, favorite part about the sessions The ColLab offers are "the why" (the science) behind the what (activities offered at The ColLab). Visit the website often for updated, science-backed, articles supporting interactive teaching and education methods!
