The future of our planet begins with our peacemakers. Our child care, preschool and primary/elementary programs will teach them that being at peace with themselves will allow them to be at peace with their community and their environment. We’re located conveniently near I-264, Rosemont Road, Lynnhaven Road and Green Run.
Mindfulness of the mind is taught through reflective thinking of problem-solving, critical thinking & experimental learning/exploration.
Mindfulness of the body is taught through movement mediation, mindful eating & connecting with nature through the outside classroom.
Mindfulness of the spirit and emotions is taught through meditation, reflection and guided imagery.
From preschool and child care up through elementary school, our peacemakers’ schedule is broken into learning blocks. Each block integrates mind/body practices.
Peacemakers (students) will engage in mindful movement, visual arts, poems, songs, chants, rhymes & stories to understand literacy which includes coding, reading & writing.
Peacemakers (students) will engage in problem-solving, critical thinking & experimental learning/exploration in our outdoor classroom through STEAM & Inquiry-Based Learning.
Peacemakers (students) will engage in mindful movement, visual arts, poems, songs, chants, rhymes & stories to understand math which includes numbers, patterns, measurement, data, space and geometry.
Peacemakers (students) 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.
Students (Peacemakers) have the opportunity to engage in an additional hour of unstructured play, additional time to practice mindful eating with healthy snacks and afternoon activities that are supported by Holistic Life Schools’ curriculum. Those activities include mindful movement, light gardening, dance, art, public library time, and music.
