Wood School Bali
Unlike traditional modes of education, Wood School Bali aims to develop and address parts of the brain beyond the intellectual and rational, in our youngest students. Rather than being limited to the conscious and subconscious mind their goal is to awaken and nurture the superconscious mind. Immersed in creativity, arts and crafts, storytelling and dramatizations the children are able to strengthen their dynamic imaginations.
Children are naturally curious and drawn to the elements found within nature (earth, air, fire and water). Science and gardening are ways the students start to explore and interact personally with these, experientially. There are endless ways for the children to be inspired as they participate in projects that illuminate their ever expanding worlds.

While the 'perfect' school for your child may not be conveniently located in relation to your home, you may find an alternative good school around your area. The convenience of the location may outweigh other factors. What matters most is each child's experience.
