‘Education to be complete must have five principal aspects relating to the five principal activities of the human being:
the physical, the vital, the mental, the psychic and the spiritual.’
L’avenir is based on the educational philosophy of Sri Aurobindo and The Mother. The Curriculum has four main components. However, the Curriculum is only a broad framework; the driving force is each child’s curiosity and need for growth.
Nurturing the child’s connect with the core of silence and beauty within
Inculcating a sense of Beauty and Nobility
Responding to the sense of inner unease when things go wrong
Training the faculties of Concentration, Observation, Reasoning, Imagination, Judgment, Memory, and Intuition
Inculcating a Scientific temperament
Training in Mathematical skills (estimation, sequencing, sorting, etc.)
Concepts of Shape, Size, Colour, Weight, Number, etc.
L’avenir offers a space to young children that combines the warmth of growing up in an atmosphere of love with the joy of discovering oneself and all that is around… the colours, the sounds, the numbers, the words, the ants, the grass, the emotions, the movements, the silence… It offers them a time to dream and a time to make these dreams come true.
