I'm so glad you found us! 


Welcome! I am Danielle, the creator of the Wonder Garden curriculum.

As a mom to three boys and a licensed teacher in Arizona with over 18 years of experience, I have a passion for education and the well-being of children. Over the years, I have worked in various teaching environments, from inner-city Chicago to owning a private in-home preschool to homeschooling. Throughout my career, I have worked with children of all ages in general education, special education, and gifted classes.

My unique journey has also led me to write curriculum for Bridgeway Homeschool Academy and assist in creating an Early Childhood curriculum at the university level. For six years, I was an instructor for a Korean-style yoga and mindfulness program and worked for their sister company, a brain-based mindfulness program for children. In these roles, I had the opportunity to create curriculum and travel the world teaching empowerment workshops and programs to teachers, parents, and students.

This vast array of experiences has allowed me to develop a comprehensive and holistic curriculum that combines the best practices from various teaching methods and philosophies. The curriculum uses nature and play to create a truly immersive learning experience that fosters the development of the whole child - body, heart, and brain. By providing children with an environment that nurtures their innate desire to learn and encourages exploration, creativity, and critical thinking, they can achieve a state of harmony or coherence in which the deepest learning takes place.

I believe that children should be given the tools to become the best version of themselves, and that starts with learning to listen to their bodies and emotions. By fostering empathy, tolerance, and problem-solving skills, we can create a generation of individuals who are confident, strong, and compassionate. My curriculum is designed to help children achieve this by allowing them to feel whole and complete as they are, giving them the confidence to see and appreciate these qualities in others.

In a world where knowledge is at our fingertips, I believe that emotional intelligence and compassion are more important than ever. With my curriculum, I am dedicated to helping young children develop the skills they need to become caring, empathetic, and capable individuals who are able to make a positive impact on the world around them.
