Mutsumi Paterson, Co-Founder/Director


Mutsumi is a mother of two currently living in Los Angeles, California. She has traveled the world, with experiences helping her recognize the value of wonder in life. Her extensive research into finding the best education for her young children led her to discover the Reggio Emilia approach. She is now dedicated to introduce what she has learned in the U.S. to Japan, including the unique early childhood education methods she wishes she’d known earlier. She also has a passion for yoga which she has practiced for over a decade, as well as finding great food and wine—anywhere in the world.
