Jörð - Desarrollo del ser infantil

Boys and girls from 7 to 14 years old.

Del 14 de mayo al 9 de julio 2022.

This program is designed to facilitate the development of the physical, emotional, and spiritual sides of the child in the second seven years of life.

Based on Nordic mythology, through stories, fables, and the magic of Mother Nature, The Jörð Program teaches children to make values flourish in their actions at school, with family, and in society. 

Nature is not a luxury, but a necessity of the human spirit, as vital as water or good bread.

Edward Abbey

Diosa de la Naturaleza (Escandinavia)

Jörð: In Nordic mythology she represents Mother Nature and is the personification of the Earth. She is a giant protector of the world. She makes everything grow in the earth, including flowers, plants, and fruits. When she leaves her sanctuary in the forest, peace and joy reign through the places she passes.

OBJECTIVE

Strengthen the development of social, cognitive, and physical skills, by using all of your senses and enjoying the exciting visual, auditory, and sensory effects that nature offers.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

This program is inspired by the Waldorf initiative and the methodology of experiential education. Based on cooperative and individualized learning, children and young people become the active subject of their own learning. 

This training system facilitates the acquisition of new skills and knowledge, helping to reinforce values through a holistic analysis of experiences, perception, cognition, and behavior, allowing the construction of meaningful learning.

Waldorf pedagogy seeks to educate the globality of the child, balancing all his abilities, his potentialities, and his will, respecting his evolutionary stages.
