At Rocky Mountain, our philosophy is rooted in the teachings of our past directors. In particular, Effie Kurlioff, who was director of the Rocky Mountain Morning Program for many years, had a deep impact on the ways we interact with the children and handle conflict resolution.
Her unique way of being with the children was documented in “The Tricycle Solution,” a short documentary by Marcia Jarmel and Ken Schneider. The documentary is free to watch below.
