Our Program

Our Program

We currently offer our program in 3-month long sessions.  Each program is offered in a different international location.  Attendance is never mandatory but we do not offer discounts for partial sessions.  


Our Daily Rhythm

The World School is inspired by principles of self-direction learning and democratic schools and so as a result, each child's experience of the day may be different, depending on their individual needs and interests and how they choose to use their time.  We have a general structure for the day but what happens within that framework will evolve over time in response to the needs, views and interests of the group. 


Typical Daily Framework

  • 9:00:  School Starts at the Nature Location - Students arrive, settle in, and ‘sit spot’.
  • 9:30-10:30:  Nature exploration
  • 10:30: Snack and Story Time
  • 10:30 - 11:45: Nature exploration
  • 11:45-12:00: Students move from Nature Location to School Building
  • 12-12:30: Lunch
  • 12:30 - 1:15: First Workshop - Students have the opportunity for free play, art, or participation in the first offered workshop of the day.
  • 1:15 - 2:00: Second Workshop -  Students have the opportunity for free play, art, or participation in the second offered workshop of the day
  • ​2:00: Parent Pickup

The organised workshops and activities will be a combination of subjects instigated by the children and facilitators, on a rolling basis with new proposals and offerings introduced regularly - every 4 weeks.  Throughout the day the children can, if they want, choose to be entirely independent in what they do, and not participate in the organised activities - they design their own day.
