The highest function of education is to bring about an integrated individual who is capable of dealing with life as a whole. - J. Krishnamurti
" School forcibly snatches away children from a world full of mystery of God's own handiwork, full of suggestiveness of personality, it is mere method of discipline that refuse to take into account the individual- Rabindranath Tagore "
Child Centric Learning at Redfields is naturally enchanted and inviting. The School wishes to nurture in each student a sense of integrity, dignity and confidence to face life's challenges ;
By fostering collaboration rather than competition in classrooms, teachers help young people feel connected.
By encouraging reflection and questioning rather than passive memorization of “facts,” teachers keep alive the “flame of intelligence” that is so much more than abstract problem-solving skill.
By respecting and working with the meaning structures that a child comes with rather than begin from a perspective of what "should" be meaningful to a child.
By strongly believing learning is an inherently creative act, and it requires a system that can move with the individual meaning making of each child.
“The purpose, the aim and drive of these schools is to equip the child with the most excellent technological proficiency so that he may function with clarity and efficiency in the modern world, and far more important to create the right climate so that the child may develop fully as a complete human being. This means giving him the opportunity to flower in goodness so that he is rightly related to people, things and ideas, to the whole of life. To live is to be related. There is no relationship to anything if there is not the right feeling for beauty, a response to nature, to music and art, a highly developed aesthetic sense.“
