The curriculum of life is caught, not taught

Never under estimate the power of 'real life work' you do in your centre or home. For generations children grew up at home following their parents, usually mother, around the house doing house work. Often too there were grandparents, aunties and uncles nearby. The saying ‘It takes a village to raise a child‘ doesn’t come out of nowhere.

A place of the heart

Children are young and happy. They have an unlimited imagination and a strong belief that all things are possible. They are full of love. They give love, but they also need to receive love. In this age of online virtual worlds, instant gratification and narcissism, it is more than ever important we make love the ultimate prime of the curriculum. Love is the foundation for life.
