The Ecological School

Living is learning, learning is living. Everyone, teachers and children, belong to the "great circle of life". We are part of that circle. This is the first "lesson", the most important. The children know it. The teacher is an adult with a child's heart. In a child, the journey from mind to heart is shorter than in an adult. Growing that distance increases to become, in some cases, bridged. They build walls or create a maze of roads between the mind and heart. The new school will be a bridge, lightweight but strong, open land that the road between the mind and heart.
