Each child is truly a seed of a tree to be,
a being with all the information to grow.
Our job as educational entities is
To provide it with the most fertile ground,
To protect it from drought and excess water,
To guard it from plagues and predators,
To supply it with the right amount of light
Allow it to just be.
Who are we?
Learning Centre Ananda is a physical space of ½ hectare, opened in 2015 in the village of San Sebastian Río Hondo in the mountains of Oaxaca, Mexico. Here we are co-creating a stimulating learning environment for the complete development of children aged 3 to 12 years old.
This one-of-a-kind project offers children in the local community the opportunity to access a unique education that allows them to fully develop their abilities under a respectful pedagogy that understands what it's like to be a child, takes into account their restlessness and individual competencies and provides all that is necessary for a child to grow, explore, express themselves and be happy.
This is achieved through a unique and well-equipped environment where
children can experience integral learning. Individual attention, didactic materials, personalized activities, autonomy, respect and no exams.
“Plant good ideas in children, even if they don’t understand them; the years will take charge of deciphering them and making them bloom in their hearts.”
