The Quaker School at Horsham (TQS) seeks Artists and Craftspeople

Horsham, PA (PressExposure) April 26, 2012 -- The TQS Day fair is a fun-filled outdoor community event with inflatable bounces, games, food and music. We welcome all family-friendly crafts people. Other family-friendly vendors may be considered.

Tables are available for $25.

TQS is a small nurturing school for children with language-based and social communication challenges. In this caring, individualized learning environment, children joyfully learn to recognize and develop their talents and strengths. Learning challenges are addressed using directly and intensively taught research-based programs attuned to each child's needs and pace.

The Quaker School at Horsham seeks artists, craftspeople and other family-friendly vendors to participate in TQS Day school fair to be held on Saturday May 19, 2012 from 11:00 - 3:00 PM on the Quaker School at Horsham campus.

For information, please visit or call Mia Glenn, 215.674.2875, extension 19.

The Mission of the Quaker School at Horsham is to provide specialized programs for bright students with diverse learning styles within a small caring community that embodies the Quaker values of integrity, equality, peace and simplicity. Our goal is to nurture, honor and celebrate the unique strengths and inherent goodness of each individual. Within this framework we create opportunities for personal and meaningful growth for each student every day.

What distinguishes The Quaker School from other, even similar, schools for children with learning disabilities? It is not the research-based programs or the ongoing professional development offered by well-trained teachers. It is not the beautiful, state-of-the-art building, with specially designed architectural features that is the backdrop of the learning environment. These elements are vital and positive, but the real quality is less tangible.

It is the intensity with which our faculty seeks to understand and support our students. When we admit a new student, we are not predetermining exactly which part of our pro­gram will change his life and will be most appealing. It is the willingness to continually change and adapt to the child's changing needs. It is the network of supports, and the agil­ity of the teachers to think differently and individually. Each teacher embraces a compos­ite of well-trod paths as well as innovative thinking.
