We are well into the new year and most of us will be back into their daily rhythms. Hopefully many of you had a chance to spend some time together as a team for preparing for the year ahead, reconnecting, and re-sparking your passion and drive that naturally wanes a little at the end of a long year.
One of the aims of heart centred teaching is to help our children to experience core values of love, care, kindness and beauty. These are abstract concepts for children if you do not provide opportunities for them to experience what care means. Saying “that is not very caring” to a child when the child doesn’t experience what caring means is fruitless. As heart centred teachers we have come to realise how important it is to "model as you teach".
