According to Mahatma Gandhi and other famous educationalists, for an effective development in the early age, the surrounding environment should be taken as a starting point. Two of the essencial principles of the “Tri Hita Karana” (Three sources of wellbeing) which inspired the balinese culture, are the harmony with social and natural environment, including animal and vegetable worlds. Harmony School’s design was inspired by a blending of those principles. Children 3 to 6 years old are expected to achieve the school objective through simple activities connected with: vegetable growing, taking care of animals, taking care of themselves and respecting others.
The above mentioned activities will provide a starting point to introduce other usual school activities.
