PachaMama School

Inspired by Rudolf Steiner’s Waldorf education principles, the holistic approach that guides the Jungle School holds that children need to discover the world through their hands, head, and heart. Emphasizing the importance of a daily rhythm and creating a supportive environment for the children’s developing physical, emotional, and mental bodies are key to the cultivation of inspiration, confidence, curiosity, and a love of learning. The Waldorf inspiration is also manifested in the choice of toys, teaching materials, stories, daily activities, and other aspects of the School.

The PachaMama School is supported by professional and qualified community residents’ and parents’ ongoing cooperation and trust.
