Teaching our Peacemakers

Building Blocks

Holistic Life Schools integrates mind and body practices to develop mindfulness, resilience and passion for learning for Peacemakers (students) ages 3 to 5 years old.

Through frequent and close interaction with our Peacekeepers (teachers) our Peacemakers (students) develop into mindful, kind and resilient kids. Our unique approach to learning is based on the following eight building blocks:

Critical Thinking

Exploration

Peacemakers are free to explore using STEAM and Inquiry-Based Learning practices.

Movement & Exercise

Peacemakers become mindful of their bodies through movement meditation.

Nutrition

Peacemakers practice mindful eating and learn nutritional education for optimal health.

Building Blocks Integration

The future of our planet begins with our Peacemakers. We will teach them that being at peace with themselves will allow them to be at peace with their community and their environment.

Through frequent and close interaction with our Peacekeepers (teachers) our Peacemakers (students) develop into mindful, kind and resilient kids. To ensure each Peacemaker gets the best and meaningful interaction with our Peacekeepers our classrooms are maintained at a 1.5:10 Peacekeeper to Peacemaker ratio. Our unique approach to learning is based on the following eight building blocks:

Literacy

Peacemakers will engage in mindful movement, visual arts, poems, songs, chants, rhymes & stories to understand literacy which includes coding, reading and writing.

Science

Peacemakers will engage in problem solving, critical thinking & experimental learning and exploration in our outdoor classroom through STEAM & Inquiry-Based Learning.

Math

Peacemakers will engage in mindful movement, visual arts, poems, songs, chants, rhymes and stories to understand math which includes numbers, patterns, measurement, data, space and geometry.

Nutrition

Peacemakers will engage in mindful eating and nutrition education to understand how eating a whole-foods based diet and overall healthy eating habits can have a major impact on physical and psychological health.
