Every day in schools across the country, teachers and children are in the act of imagining themselves into the future. But what kind of future should we prepare for?
There’s no way of knowing what world our children will inherit. At Mimosa we believe the future can be better by working together for tomorrow, today.
We re-imagine education. We are a learning community that grows problem-solving, creativity and collaboration, emotional resilience and intelligence, and cultural flexibility.
Mimosa is a preprimary and foundation phase at the foot of the SABC tower in Auckland Park, Johannesburg.
Reggio Emilia Approach
We believe that children have ‘a hundred languages’ in which they express themselves and make meaning of the world. Construction, fantasy, art, music, dance, writing, talking, singing and science – all are ways of finding out more about ourselves and the world around us. In our classrooms, these ‘languages’ are used to help children create, construct, question and understand the world around them.
School Without Walls
For us learning involves hands-on investigation and exploration. We visit local galleries and theatre productions, attend practices of the UJ orchestra, walk through Melville. We get involved in events in our neighbourhood and become visible members of our community.
Children, parents and teachers work together to create a culture where childhood is respected and our time together is shaped by joy, shared exploration and creativity. We’re all in a process of becoming better citizens of the world. We share our resources and responsibilities.
