The majority of the morning consists of uninterrupted individual work time in which children practice and master concepts and activities. This work time allows for small group lessons, individual lessons, peer collaboration, and in-depth exploration. Allowing each student to work at their best pace keeps interest high, develops concentration, and builds self-esteem.
We support the development of each child’s unique spirit which guides their personality, learning styles and how they approach the world.
We work to develop the students’ compassion and understanding of the connection between themselves and others by deepening their knowledge of the interdependency of the earth and all that live on it.
