Educational Philosophy

 

Our educational philosophy is inspired by Rudolf Steiner, an Austrian philosopher, scientist, and educator. Steiner recognised the impact of early childhood on an individual’s consequent development and devised age-appropriate approaches for teaching.

His theory is now widely accepted and followed in many schools, kindergartens and educational centres worldwide. Steiner understood that the early childhood years are a vital foundation for a person’s life-long development. The goal he set was to help children develop as free, morally responsible, and integrated individuals equipped with a high degree of social skills and creativity.

Steiner believed that early emphasis on intellectualising the child with cognitive and analytical work robs energy needed for physical growth and development, a vital process inherent to early childhood.

For these reasons, our centre lets children be children. Our curriculum promotes imitative and imaginative play, social interaction, physical activity, and appreciation for beauty and nature.

These give children a strong sense of self and a foundation for later academic success by fostering sound logical reasoning, mental capabilities, and a reverence for life.
