Yellow Train began as a 13-year old’s dream of wanting a school founded on love for children inspired by the Japanese tale of Totto Chan. Our Kindergarten celebrates the magic of childhood. Our primary is a creative and vibrant environment rooted in wholesome education. Our middle school is constructed around the needs of the growing adolescent. Our newest dream is The High School. Creating Free thinking and competent young adults with the spirit of I care, I can and I will is our aspiration. We are dreamers and doers.
Our building made of mud blocks with open spaces and light play.
Our festivals with kites, books, clay, wood, theatre, music.
Our curriculum that meets the head, hand and the heart.
Our children as journalists, poets, social workers and farmers.
Our night school, morning hugs, marathons, DEAR time, tree of joy.
Our sangha, silence bell, our library in a bogie. We are innovators.
We believe that happy teachers can change the world. We believe in unhurried childhood. We believe relationship is key to development. We believe in the inner life of the teacher. We believe in excellence. We believe everyone gives their best in an open, collaborative, creative workspace. We believe in the power of a circle. We believe that strengths should be celebrated and struggles should be supported. We believe in knowing and learning about the self. We are believers.

I shall be telling this with a sigh, Somewhere ages and ages hence
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I took the one less traveled by
And that has made all the difference.
