Who is the learning community for?
What kind of children thrive in our community?
All kinds! Here are some examples:
Sensitive children that find mainstream settings stressful. These children flourish in our small, nurturing classes, away from the pressures of crowded classrooms and assessments.
Free-spirited children who don't want to spend their days sitting at a desk and being told what to do. Here they love choosing what and how they will learn, and having the time and space to be themselves.
Bright children who are frustrated in mainstream settings. These children really want to learn and not spend their time following petty rules or waiting for the teacher to deal with behavioural issues.
Children with mild learning difficulties. They really benefit from the small class sizes, the extra support and being genuinely listened to.
Children who are at the high functioning end of the autistic spectrum. They really enjoy the calm atmosphere created by the mindfulness practise. Their anxiety levels tend to reduce in our nurturing environment.
Home educated children who are looking for interaction with other children and to learn with a variety of educators.
Children who have been bullied in mainstream settings. They feel accepted for who they are without having to try to fit it. They feel respected and valued by the educators and the other children.
