Our program starts with Design Thinking
Design Thinking is a powerful approach to creating innovative solutions for real world problems.
Championed by the likes of IDEO and Stanford University, Design Thinking provides a great opportunity to focus on vital skills like critical thinking and creativity. It also encourages curiosity, resilience and entrepreneurial ways of working.
And focuses on experiential learning
Inspired by educational innovators Sir Ken Robinson & Ricardo Semler. Our lessons are structured as ‘experiences’ and empower children to choose their own learning pathway & lean into their strengths.
And outdoor education
Kids who are connected to nature are more likely to protect it. So all our lessons can be taught outdoors in a way that encourages children to explore and discover the natural world around them.
We explore seven core themes - Climate change, protecting our oceans, biodiversity, sustainable living, rethinking design, happy & healthy & outdoor adventures.
And the values we learn from spending time in nature - Courage, respect, playfulness, curiosity, gratitude, kindness, determination & presence.
Each lesson is aligned to the UN Sustainable Development Goals
