Our educational philosophy is based on P.R. Sarkar’s philosophy of Neohumanism, which extends the love inherent in human beings to include love for all people, animals, plant life and the inanimate world. This outlook is based on a belief in holistic and collective harmony.
Neohumanist education focuses on inter-connection, unity in diversity, the use of science and technology for the welfare of all and maintaining an ecologically balanced world.
Our school in Finland is a part of a global neohumanist education network in which over a thousands of primary and secondary schools and children’s centers are advancing excellence and integrity in over fifty developed and developing countries.
Children stay in our kindergarten for a short time, but during this time, the seeds of their future are planted in the attitudes and character formed in these critical developmental years. The essence of this neohumanist education curriculum is expressed when children retain the following essential ideas, forming the basis of a healthy psychology which, once “planted” continues to grow and flourish throughout life.
- “I am good, I love and I am loved” – the basis for self-esteem, optimism and positivity
- “I love to learn” – the basis for a life-long enthusiasm for continual growth and self-improvement
- “I love to help others and the world around me” – the basis for service-mindedness and meaningfulness that comes from the satisfaction of making an active contribution in the world
- “I am happy when others are happy” – the basis for a strong personality with a moral conscience, empathy for all, cooperative spirit and collective consciousness.
- “I am never alone or helpless, the force that guides the stars guides me too”- the basis for a spiritual sense of connectedness, security, and trust in the benevolence of the universe.
