Kids Corner / Global Connected Centre
Kids Corner is a centre for children to enjoy the company of each other, play, learn and explore, but mainly to be themselves while discovering “LIFE”. Kids Corner started in July 2013 with 3 children.
Children here are at the center of the pedagogy (not the curriculum). We believe in no authority in the classroom. Discipline is being taught through communication and mutual understanding. There is no teacher on one side and student on another side, we are both learning from each other in a warm and informal way. Students are treated as individuals, with respect to each other’s nature and pace of learning. The children here are exposed to a wealth of experience many of them linked with the natural world. Learning takes place through various activities including the academic skills required for healthy development. No pushing, no force, and no compulsory study are ever required. When the child is ready, the bridge opens for both the educator and the child to go over it. There is zero division of social class, gender or religion. We want children to grow as one undivided human being, having an inward and outward understanding about life.
Kids Corner has been existing for 6 years with a dozen of children from 3 to 8 years old and we are now ready to go global through the 'GCC' and give the possibility for children to interact real time few hours a month via the latest tools the technology offers, in order to learn together from each other. To awaken the curiosity of the child in relation to the world around him / her, to help him realize that he’s a global entity, so that he becomes aware of his potential and strive towards achieving it through activating his intelligence, intelligence which is the function of both the mind and the heart.
Kids Corner is the seed put fourth for our future vision - “The School of Life”, a place for children to be given the opportunity to flower in their goodness so that he/she will be rightly related to people, things, ideas, and to the WHOLE of life. The idea is to observe the nature of each individually in order to respect the various rhythms of learning and quality of intelligence. The ultimate goal/vision of the School of Life is to prepare these children to be part of a global fraternity of free thinkers. It is our concern to help these kids to come up in life, free from the fetters of beliefs and non-beliefs.
