Kia Ora, we are The Heart School


We are the creators and pollinators of beautiful practices and resources for teachers who believe in following the heart in their teaching, rather than following a guide book or the latest craze.

We also create The Heart School newsletter full of heart nuggets on how to establish a strong living identity that is anchored in our hearts. In the newsletter we share our practical and philosophical ideas about creating beautiful, homely environments 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.

Check out our blog. It is full of inspiration on how to teach from, with and in the heart.
