So most of you have probably heard the words Holistic education dropped by the cool Mamas at your local coffee shop but probably didn't completely understand what all the hype was about.
To break it down short & simple Holistic education is based on the principle that every person out there finds the purpose of life, meaning and identity through connections to the community, spiritual values and the natural world.
I personally like to deliver an organic holistic learning experience to my son Ollie in addition to a traditional STEAM based education that he experiences at Kindy. I feel a holistic approach focuses more on emotional, psychological, and social growth which may not necessarily be focused on in mainstream education. It's very individualised and encourages motivation and creativity which is really important to me being a creative.
The movement is becoming more and more common and there are some amazing resources out there! Here are some of my personal faves;
