Kia Ora, welcome to The Heart School

We are the creators of hands-on and hearts-in practical resources for teachers who believe in following the heart in their practices, rather than following a guide book or the latest craze. Giving inspiration is one thing we do, the hearts-in WHY of teaching. Creating practical resources is the other thing we do, the hands-on WHAT of teaching. It makes us a one stop place for you.

We are the WHO behind The Heart School newsletter which is full of heart nuggets on how to establish a strong living identity that is anchored in your heart. In the newsletter we share our practical and philosophical ideas about creating beautiful, homely environments and practices that cover both the seen and unseen in early childhood and how to keep the heart at the heart of teaching. Our newsletter is full of original content. There’s no spam and it’s totally free.

And if you want more, grab a cuppa, put your feet up, sit in front of a roaring fire or bask in the sun and check out our blog. It is full of inspiration on how to teach from, with and in the heart.


How can we help?

Teaching from the Heart is a personal choice, not a center choice

How can we honour our core values of care, love, beauty, and kindness? How can we meet governance requirements in our centres and also stand true to our conviction of keeping the heart at the heart of teaching? How can we establish a strong living identity that is anchored in our hearts? How can we teach from the heart and stay true to our values and believes?

Are you scratching your head? We did. Many years of exploring, researching, learning, being curious, innovating and walking the talk we have created a treasure trove of practical products and ideas to help and inspire you to teach from the heart, with the heart and for the heart. Browse around. There's bound to be something for you.
