NURTURING THE WHOLE CHILD
We can never be whole, in harmony, balanced, unless every part of us is healthy – body, mind and spirit – if we only educate the mind we are not whole, there is an emptiness that we need to fill.

Given a choice, children generally prefer to be outside in the fresh air, free to roll on the grass, climb the trees and rocks and chase butterflies amongst the flowers. When children spend time outside where they can be free to play, create, climb, sing and dance, they are happier and healthier.
Children thrive outdoors
