In addition to our immediate grounds, students and their teachers explore our neighborhood utilizing the downtown Charlottesville community. Trips to McGuffey Park, walks on the downtown mall, and trips to nearby parks on the trolley round out the CBI campus.

IMG_2139Due to the proximity of neighborhood history, parks, and businesses, CBI students are able to learn about the world around them by actually visiting the very topics that they are studying. Through their project based learning, children  three year olds interview construction workers while learning about tools used to build, two year olds visit the cupcake store while studying cake and kindergarteners become “earth protectors” on earth day on the downtown mall.
