Spiritual development

Spiritual development is about the development of a sense of identity, self-worth and appreciation of our uniqueness. We encourage our children to explore their own beliefs, values and emotions and respecting those in others. Our children are exposed to a sense of awe and wonder and fascination about the world around us, learning how to be creative in our learning and having the ability to explore, reflect and develop their own potential.
