Childhood is a time of curiosity and wonder. A child looks to the sky and is captivated by its birds and stars. She uncovers life’s miracles piece by piece, moment by moment, fascinated by all that is new.
As the years pass and age advances, some of that wonder fades. Yet, many of us, even if less inspired, remain open and hopeful for moments of awe.

Starting a new school is a life-changing experience. We met with the first families that started at Avenues New York in its first year, six years ago. They are just as excited for the arrival of Avenues São Paulo today as they were on that first, first day in New York in 2012. I invite you to view the video below to hear firsthand what it was like for them to join "our" school.
