Overview

We are a team of passionate educators, researchers and parents who are keen to see a transformation in childhood development and excited by the potential to enhance how we nurture growing minds.

This has led to the creation of our first Discovery Centre – a place that reflects our vision, philosophy and research while providing the opportunity to build our own foundation within a unique environment for exploration.

We believe in hands on learning, as well as outdoor education in our garden. Eventually we hope to be fully immersed in nature taking advantage of our private conservation land and nature trails we’re in the process of developing.

 

Our Discovery Centre provides an environment for exploration with a focus on creativity, critical thinking and STEM skills.

As we lay the groundwork we’re keen to share with the rest of the community so we can build a valuable relationship with you, the readers, and provide a useful resource for educators and families. This is going to be an organic process that will likely change and evolve but - “sometimes it's the journey that teaches you a lot about your destination.

The fact is that given the challenges we face, education doesn't need to be reformed - it needs to be transformed. The key to this transformation is not to standardize education, but to personalize it, to build achievement on discovering the individual talents of each child, to put students in an environment where they want to learn and where they can naturally discover their true passions.
