We believe that education is not confined to the classroom or to childhood. Our students and teachers alike are lifelong learners, and our curriculum is designed to nurture the individual within the community and within the natural world. Children learn how their actions affect others and how we are all part of, and responsible for, something much larger. With high ethical and moral standards and the motivation and capacity to lead, they emerge as thoughtful, confident, and responsible adults.
We are here to ignite a love of learning within each student and create an environment that fosters growth and inspiration by awakening and nourishing the unique capacities of each child in all dimensions physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual. Our curriculum, grounded in artistic and practical work, is designed to foster intellectual curiosity, social sensitivity and physical stamina, thereby developing within each student a feeling for beauty, clarity of thought, and a strong inner motivation.
At Garden House, we strongly believe in the core principles of Waldorf Education. To further highlight these principles, we have developed Four Pillars which serve as a guiding tool for our teachers and staff.
Our Four Pillars hold specific meaning for our students. Firstly, we aim to instill a Passion for Life in our students, encouraging them to embrace all aspects of life with enthusiasm and curiosity. Secondly, we strive to develop Ethical and Collaborative Skills, empowering our students to become responsible and compassionate members of their communities.
We also prioritize the development of solid physical, emotional, intellectual, and social foundations in our students. We believe that a well-rounded education is essential for thriving in all aspects of life, and we strive to provide our students with the tools and skills they need to flourish.
Finally, we place great emphasis on Multi-disciplinary artistic experiences. We believe that artistic expression is a fundamental part of human experience and that exposure to a variety of art forms can enrich and enhance learning.
By providing an education based on the Four Pillars, we aim to nurture and develop well-rounded individuals who can contribute positively to society.
