|About||Alithia Learning is an alternative way to the current schooling system, putting parents and children in the drivers seat.|
Alithia Learning is a not-for-profit charity that provides a space for re-imagining and re-examining learning; we are working with children and experts to pilot a new approach to education. Our foundation begins with a 21st century understanding of child development and communication techniques. Our specialised communication tools create an ideal trusting and nurturing environment where children can flourish academically, socially and emotionally. We offer tools that help grow compassionate, creative thinkers who have a life-long love of learning and self-understanding.
Our Learning Facility is set to launch January 2019 and will work as a communal space for children to come together for collaborative projects, hands-on activities and workshops.
This is a democratic environment in which children help to create the space and are encouraged to instigate projects.
We have an interest in the educational value of play, the importance of mixed-age groups, learning that is based largely outdoors in nature, problem-solving and a connection to culture (looking at learning from the perspective of our first people).
Our holistic approach supports families to raise children as confident, competent, caring individuals, who have a sense of belonging in their community and the world.
The Learning Facility also works as physical support network in response to the rise in home education. Families are welcome to work alongside their children when they wish.
