Who We Are

Natural Creativity is a resource center for self-directed education located in Philadelphia's Germantown neighborhood. At NC, families who choose an alternative to traditional schooling receive support through our partnership model.  Young people ages 4-18 come to our space 1-4 days a week to explore a wide range of materials and opportunities with staff and other young people. We are designed to be a supplement to our families' homeschooling/self-directed education practice.


We are not recreating school; we are co-creating education and childhood. Through creativity, compassion, and collaboration, we bring young people to the forefront of their stories.

Believe in a world of co-liberation…

...where each of us is driven to do the work necessary for all of us to thrive,
...where the right to direct one’s own life toward meaning and connection is inalienable and celebrated.
