Living is Learning
I have been a student, a teacher and an art therapist. Now I am a mother. I take this latest role very seriously. I want to raise beautiful humans who think about themselves and the impact they have on our world. Who are strong, smart and sensitive. For this reason I want to have a major role in shaping their experiences. I want their life to be full of happiness, adventure and connection.
I see learning as not something contained to classrooms, in fact this type of learning is often very disconnected from real life.
Living is learning.
Everyday we are learning by being in the world, experiencing new things or visiting new places.
Learning is everywhere.
I approach every experience as a learning opportunity. Wondering, questioning, seeking to find answers. My children always come away learning something new (without having to sit them down to do book work!)
Holistic Education is a balance. Not favouring one area of learning over another. It’s authentic learning. The type of learning that excites the mind and warms the heart. Children will remember what they have learnt because it is meaningful and engaging. It is instilling a love of life-long learning.
We are only at the beginning of our education journey as a family, but I am so excited for what is to come.
