Imagine a school that nurtures the growth of your child
Educating students is like cultivating a garden
The seeds of childhood are nurtured in a protective and enriched “greenhouse” environment. Early Childhood Educators feed the children well, give them lots of play time, and help them build social skills to grow in the greater world “outside”.
Parent and Child Programs, Childcare and Kindergarten
- story-telling, painting, crafts, songs
- daily indoor and outdoor play, circle time
- chores, self-care, social skills, daily rhythms
- nature walks, baking, wholesome snacks
- rhythmical movement
- small class sizes
Gradually roots strengthen and leaves take shape. At this stage children form good work habits and learn basic language arts and arithmetic skills. They become interested in history and science, expand their abilities in the practical, visual and performing arts, and develop physical dexterity and emotional security.
- class plays, daily outdoor play, physical education, singing, flute/recorder playing
- cooperative work, service within the school community
- student-crafted lesson books, daily speech exercises, clay and beeswax modelling, form drawing
As the plants mature, their stalks grow more robust. The young students now blossom with self-confidence and integrity; their intellects awaken and foster a profound understanding of life.
After many years of careful tending, the rich fruit of the students’ educational journey begins to ripen.
- critical thinking
- rigorous academics
- student-designed lesson books
- service to the school and wider community
- experiential enrichment activities
- outdoor education
