“The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination.
It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.”
Thank you for visiting my school/daycare page.
We have 3 different groups of children depending on their age & ability. There is a good mix of age appropriate activities within your child’s group & time to interact with all the age groups.
Through the inspiration of Steiner’s research in child development and current research on brain development and the importance of bonding, rhythm, we recognize that this model of care supports the healthy development of the child.
“Our highest endeavor must be to develop free human beings who are able of themselves to impart purpose and direction to their lives. The need for imagination, a sense of truth, and a feeling of responsibility—these three forces are the very nerve of education.”
― Rudolf Steiner
The younger ones learn basic self-care and social skills from observing the older children and the older ones learn basic nurturing skills by observing the caregivers tend to the little ones. Another benefit of having mixed ages is that the ratio of children to care providers enables more of a family feeling. The caregiver/teacher is able to meet the special needs of each age group.
