Program description:

Silkwood has a Big Picture Academy which is committed to the Big Picture education distinguishers and design. Silkwood’s educational program is uniquely student-centred and developmental. ‘Student-centred’ means we judge successful teaching by the students’ engagement; ‘developmental’ means the child’s journey from the magic of early childhood to the argumentative world of adolescence is supported by carefully prepared learning experiences tailored to respond to specific age groups. Silkwood’s pedagogy combines spiritual, intellectual, emotional and physical dimensions of learning, offering a truly integrative approach.
