Importance of PLAY

In raising children, we need to continuously keep in mind how we can best create the most favorable environment for their imitative behavior. Everything done in the past regarding imitation must become more and more conscious and more and more consciously connected with the future. Rudolf Steiner

Education’s objective is to nurture capable individuals, who create meaning for their lives, and who become freethinking and acting individuals. Experience an education system that seeks to educate the whole child through his head, heart, and hands. Education is based on a thorough knowledge of the inner life of the child and follows his developmental stages. First, the child is brought to experience things actively and then to feel these things, before finally approaching them intellectually.
As people who have been very passionate about understanding the growing child, we have read worked and researched great work done by some remarkable philosophers around the world.
Red Hill offers an introductory course on Understanding the Child for educators and parents that will help you understand the philosophy and the tools that will be helpful in supporting the development of the child.

By the end of the program you will be able to:
1) Look at ‘the child’ in a new light and have a greater understanding of their growth and needs.
2) Awareness of the different stages of child development.
3) Learn to use effective tools while working with children.

-In-depth understanding of the child at each stage of development

The true teachers and educators are not those who have learned pedagogy as the science of dealing with children, but those in whom pedagogy has awakened through understanding the human being.
