- As America's mainstream education systems continue to disappoint both parents and students, schooling alternatives present a fresh opportunity and revolutionary approach to teaching children. - Collaborative learning communities help students to discover themselves and their passions while parents play an active role in their education. Inspired by Montessori, Catherine Fraise founded Workspace to provide children the opportunity to learn and grow outside the four walls of "school." - This video is supported by yes. every kid., an initiative that aims to rethink education from the ground up by connecting innovators in a shared mission to conquer "one size fits all" education reform. Catherine Fraise is passionate about creating learning environments where children thrive. She created Workspace Education as a low-cost prototype of a new educational model. Imagine going to school in a Google-like environment and creating your best.life.ever. Families create custom personalized pathways for their children, choosing from the universe of learning opportunities available globally, assisted by a professional education team. Workspace has in-house educators and parents can bring in their own educators also and participate in the creation of engaging learning experiences. Workspace is a coworking/colearning space that allows families to maximize their family time and fulfillment, as well as provide a truly customized education to fit the needs of every child.
