Five Senses

At Holistic Life Schools, our sensory garden allows your child to experience their five senses (touch, hearing, sight, taste, and smell.) Our peacekeepers (teachers) will encourage peacemakers (students) to engage in activities, such as the texture of plants, the sounds of chirping birds, and much more.

Mindfulness

Our sensory garden teaches our students mindfulness. We strive to encourage your child to be mindful of themselves, their community, and their environment. Through the utilization of their five senses, peacemakers explore the world around them. Through stimulation of different tastes, smells, and more, your child will gain awareness of their environment.

Unique Experience

At Holistic Life Schools, our commitment is to provide a unique experience for our peacemakers that will prepare them for life-long learning. Peacemakers will engage in exploration and critical thinking in our outdoor classroom (adjacent to the sensory garden) using Inquiry-Based Learning. Inquiry-Based learning is a process that engages our peacemakers by helping them to make connections with real-world experiences (such as growing their own food in the sensory garden), exploration and high-level questioning. There is much to be learned inside an “outside” classroom. Our outdoor classrooms include fun and engaging opportunities for our peacemakers. Our peacekeepers (teachers) strive to create a holistic and mindful environment for your child to grow and succeed.

Discover Our Philosophy On Education

Holistic Life Schools integrate mind/body practices to develop mindfulness, resilience, and a passion for learning for peacemakers ages 3 to 12.

Mindfulness is the state of being attentive.

Meditation is used for exercise and training in attention. Meditation is an exercise that teaches you mindfulness and increases your ability to be attentive, present, and aware. Meditation is a work-out, the brain is a gym. The more you engage in meditation, the more attentive, present, and aware you will become.

Resilience is the ability to recover from setbacks, adapt well to change, and keep going in the face of adversity.

Mindfulness cultivates and sustains resilience. We teach our peacemakers mindfulness in efforts. for them to recognize signals that their body, mind and spirit sends to them. For example,
attentiveness to the body helps us to recognize when we need rest, food or when we are upset.

Passion is displayed when our peacemakers show excitement and motivation to learn.

Children learn best when they are excited about their learning experience. They are more engaged and their brain is wired to receive information.
