Real-World Learning programs enrich or replace traditional school. An individually designed experience is created based on your child's passions, interests, and strengths, and guided by an expert facilitator. This process makes learning more engaging, more fun, more memorable, and ultimately more meaningful. This is where true learning begins.

For children ages 5-10 who are currently learning in or out of tradition school programs 

As we live through this time of great transition, more and more people recognize how deeply flawed our education system is. Facing issues from equity disparity to a lack of meaningful content, our children are not receiving the kind of instruction they need to stay engaged long enough to discover their deep passions and hone their true callings. In order for humanity to both survive and thrive, major changes must occur.

 

Many of us feel overwhelmed by the task, but today’s children bring with them great passion, empathy, and a strong sense of justice, all of which will help them find solutions to today’s challenges. With guidance and understanding, these bright lights can learn the skills needed to accomplish such grand schemes.

 

The role of a parent is to offer safety and unconditional love. These children are ready for a holistic approach to learning that engages the mind, body, and spirit. Through this experience, your child will feel seen and unconditionally accepted, laying the groundwork to enter a flow state where learning and creativity thrive. The relationship Maya builds is one of teacher, mentor, coach, guide, and ultimately, friend.

Education is not preparation for life. Education is life itself.
-John Dewey

At Whole Child Education, we understand that a one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t work. We want children to maintain the wonder and curiosity they had when they were little and invite that energy into their learning. Too many times we have seen what happens to a child’s love of learning after a few years in a school that isn’t a great fit. Here at Whole Child Education, we offer solutions to overcome these challenges based on years of experience and expertise.
