An Open Source Modular Micro Schooling System
A pioneering new school class for 6-8 year olds and a parent and child group, for 0-6 year olds, will be opening in the woods of north Norfolk this Autumn.
It seems many people are looking for a more evolved and compassionate way of learning for their children, that harmonises body/mind/soul, and engages deeply with the living earth, the seasons and the weather.
The greater vision is to create an open source modular micro schooling system – with individual satellite classes all connected, sharing resources and information. Even more exciting for us is the possibility that under this unified umbrella, different classes might operate completely different systems – ours is two days per week and Steiner based, and others may be four days Montessori or Reggio, or a full week National Curriculum – whatever each local group chooses works best for them.
Imagine all the teachers from these varied pedagogies coming together for an annual conference – bringing and contributing the best aspects of each system – perhaps being inspired to evolve entirely new ways of thinking about education.
Our intention is to document our journey and freely share our experiences and our model, in the hope it will inspire others that they too can create the class that will best suit their group of children in their environment.
If you’re looking for a more whole-form education for your child, and they are currently aged 0-8 we’d love to have you in our classes in north Norfolk. If your child is any other age, then we hope our story will empower you to begin your own.
Let’s actively create the better education systems that we want for our children and our community.
If this resonates with you, get in touch.
Share this with everyone you know.
More of us makes us stronger.
