The purpose of the infant and junior curriculum at Maharishi Free School is to create the stable foundation for all future learning and educational success.
This curriculum is designed to enliven the children’s experience of inner happiness and self-confidence, enrich their imagination and provide varied opportunities for positive social interaction.
The teachers carefully select those learning materials and activities that refine and enliven the five senses in the context of a rich curriculum.
A special emphasis is on the establishment of the tender bond between the teachers and children which nourishes the young children in their first school experience. On this basis the child’s receptivity to learning is established.
The goal of the curriculum in the Junior years is to provide the understanding of how the inner values of life support growth and progress in each child’s life and in every subject that they study.
By inspiring children with the understanding that the nature of life is to grow and progress, they can appreciate that it is on the basis of the development of inner values that outer progress is easy and effective.
