Perspectives and values about education, employment, and quality of life are shifting worldwide and collectively, there is a growing dissatisfaction with the status quo.
As more and more families, educators, and entrepreneurs are following their hearts and connecting to their deeper humanity, there is a greater need for alternative, holistic systems that are aligned with this evolution.
Internationally, families are gaining courage to reject traditional and outdated educational models in exchange for travel, home schooling, road schooling, and unschooling.
World Learning Program
Life Project Education offers international visiting families the opportunity to enroll in programs that truly represent their family’s values.
Our alternative “world-learning” program serves visiting children ages 4-12.
A small group dynamic assures our students receive individualized attention and support in all content areas. We welcome traveling students and our local full-time students are eager to host, teach, and learn from new friends around the world.
We work closely with visiting families to ensure seamless transition into our program, develop unique learning objectives for their time with us, provide evaluations and transcripts upon request, and can accommodate nearly any curriculum need.
Some of our programs available in our World Learning program include:
Mindful, Heartful curriculum: Learning objectives include self-regulation, character education, breath work, yoga, verbal and non-verbal communication, and nurturing a child’s sense of self through heart connection, spirituality, creative expression, and general wellness.
Bilingual Education: Our bilingual curriculum and staff nurture “simultaneous bilingualism” within our young local children, most of whom have been exposed to two or more languages since birth. Daily exposure and opportunities to use and learn both English and Spanish equally, encourages and honors our children’s natural language acquisition. Non-local, visiting children are immersed in a language-rich environment, experiencing and acquiring both English and Spanish socially through play and adult modeling. Private Spanish instruction is also available.
Project-Based Learning: Topics may be customized to children’s level, interests and strengths but generally incorporate: an authentic age-appropriate challenge or problem to be solved, partner or small group collaboration, investigation, student-centered inquiry and problem solving, and presentation of learning. 2015 topics included: raising awareness about endangered wildlife in Costa Rica, designing a home-school garden, and developing a student-led business creating organic home and body products. We can customize projects depending on child’s age, strengths, interests, group size, and duration.
Individualized “Life Projects”: Nurturing a child’s own natural talents and personal passions facilitate discovery of their intrinsic “calling”, their inner fire- an element that is tragically ignored and stifled in traditional settings. The human mind is profoundly creative, yet even many adults have no sense of their true talents or even joy. Personalized early education is a direct pathway to help children recognize and fulfill their full potential. “Life Projects” include fully customized, individualized learning goals based solely on the child’s joys and gifts. As mentors, we support children in identifying topics and skills to explore and nourish.
