The Third Teacher

The Third Teacher

Our environment acts as the “third teacher”, inspiring children to investigate, to experiment, to engage. We therefore take great care in preparing the space with materials that are visually pleasing, colours that are calming, a space that is welcoming and homely where commercial decorations are minimal.The children’s individual artwork is displayed in the Gallery together with our documentations about the processes of thinking they followed to get to that product. Family photos adorn the Wonder Wall together with interesting pictures that provoke questions and answers. Spaces exist for children to play together or alone, in small groups or large, and to run freely outside in the beautiful garden shaded by tall old trees and visited by birds and bugs.
