Build a human.

Kids are the most authentic, creative people on the planet. But our education system hasn’t always treated them that way. Moonrise is a colearning space where kids are free to play, build things, and learn together. It’s a space just for them in a world designed for adults. Drop them off anytime from 7am-9pm, including weekends and summer.

Give them space

Kids learn best when given the freedom to play and explore. Moonrise gives them access to creative tools, hundreds of books and magazines, reading nooks, a makerspace, private study rooms, modern toys, comfy couches, keycard entry, healthy snacks, an art studio, and super-fast WiFi.

Learning guides

We hire incredible guides who get to know your child, guide them to resources, and inspire their learning.

Makerspace

We stock our colearning spaces with creative tools, art supplies, 3D printers, legos, and much more.

Reading nooks

When your kid needs quiet time to read or study, our reading nooks and private rooms have you covered.

Kids cafe

When kids feel better, they learn better. Our smoothies and power bowls give them a delicious boost.

FAQ

What's colearning?

Colearning empowers children to learn in shared spaces with adult supervision. Just like coworking spaces gave adults a place to work outside of their home and office, colearning gives kids a place to learn outside of home and school.

Is this a school?

Legally, yes. Moonrise is licensed and accredited as a private school. But that's about where the similarities end. We have learning guides, not teachers. Members, not students. Comfy chairs, not desks.

How do you keep kids safe?

Our spaces are secured with keycard entry, video surveillance, and a zero-bullying policy. Guides are background checked and CPR certified. During the pandemic, we're installing HEPA air filters, scheduling daily cleanings, and regularly checking our staff.

Who can join?

Moonrise is for kids ages 5-11. Research strongly supports the idea that kids learn best in mixed aged groups. Younger children benefit from having relatable role models and mentors, and older children gain more independence and responsibility. When you remove labels like "below grade level", kids adopt a growth mindset where learning is viewed as a process, not an outcome.

Where are you located?

Our first space is opening in April 2021. We'll be expanding throughout metro Atlanta over the next 18 months.
