Self-directed experiential learning: the philosophy behind St Nicholas Early Education

June 19, 2018 Britten Thompson

Curiosity drives infants and toddlers to explore and experience the world around them. It is this innate curiosity which inspires a child’s interest in developing an understanding of their surroundings and their place within life. With the importance of curiosity in mind, it is essential to nurture the desire for discovery and expanded horizons in all children.

TUESDAYS WITH TERESA: Something is dying, something is being born

June 19, 2018 Teresa Brierley

This week, I am scribing my message earlier than usual because I am up north for the weekend helping one of our daughters to prepare for the birth of her next child. I will be occupied with living in the present in order to assist in preparing her, her family and all of us for this new reality. In writings around rites of passage, this is called the liminal space, the space of being ‘not there yet’. It is a time of anticipation but also a time of fear and wondering, for what may or may not eventuate, a time of unknowing and yet a time of trusting. In these liminal spaces, we really do need each other because we face the unknown.
