Open and inclusive spaces that reflect openness to learning.
Enduring respect for children as thinkers and explorers.
Structures and processes ‘led’ by children, experiential education, collaborative work and skilful feedback.
Choices with a purpose that define children as individuals far more than their abilities.
We believe all beings inherently love to learn. Children learn by sharing their discoveries with each other, their teachers and parents.
The vision of the school is to create and nurture a learning community of students, teachers and parents – a community that believes in the possibility of progressive development of children and adults through change in education. Each child is recognised for her own strengths, creating an environment free of judgement and conformity.
It’s a place where ‘I can be me’; true for a facilitator as much as for a student! Our Vision is to enable each child to develop a character that engages with the world with self-worth and acceptance of the other.
Drawing inspiration from the philosophy of Integral Education integration of physical, mental, social, emotional and psychic self of children is emphasised. We believe that acceptance of the self and conflict resolution through dialogue opens pathways to peace.
In the school children and facilitators are both learners; together they discover and construct knowledge. Collaboration is not limited amongst humans; we believe in co-existence and learning to live with and from Nature.
We believe in the philosophy of inclusion and facilitate an inclusive environment for children with varying abilities and from different socio-economic backgrounds.
