What is specific about Olivetree

Unique, True and Free

  • Uniqueness

    We believe it is in the early childhood that the future adult will prepare all his soil of life. Each child is unique and is considered as unique.

  • Truthfulness

    A child is born true. An healthy pedagogy allows it to remain true. And it starts at home. Olivetree keeps the home spirit and as an harmonious family, each member is respected, loved and empowered .

  • Presence of Nature

    We believe that Nature carries the best elements to learn and grow. Touching, breathing, eating, listening sounds of Nature are part of our daily rhythm. Nature is a great teacher.

Prepare your child for Life

Feel The Difference

There are four core beliefs on which everything centers at our Children Garden. This is what gives Olivetree the quality you feel when you enter for first time in our "Home"

  1. Sense of Freedom

    We give to children all the necessary environment to connect with their surroundings in new ways, so they freely discover what is meaningful to them.

  2. Commitment

    A child’s educational life in large part depends on families, educators, peers and relevant members of the community. Each of us is committed for the child's sake.

  3. Self learning

    Sharing new experiences and solving problems with others leads to a greater sense of connectedness – as well as meaningful learning experiences. It increases awareness and empower mindfulness

  4. Connected to Nature

    Children spend 2/3 hours outside every morning. Exploring our garden, building, climbing trees, playing with friends, sand, mud and water, seeding and harvesting, and above all, enjoying the elements of Nature.

We Work to Understand Your Children Needs

We provide a warm and encouraging atmosphere that enhances self-autonomy, instills true moral values, encourages social interaction, and enriches awareness of the natural and cultural world. We’re a warm and loving community of children, educators, and parents who inspire imagination, creativity, and play for all of us.

In an environment rooted in respect and compassion, we strive to nourish each child's spirit and provide a protective space for him or her to grow with self confidence.

Where parents and children learn and play

A Center for Waldorf Education

We provide a natural, nurturing and stimulating environment where children develop independence, confidence and a positive sense of self and the world around them. Our curriculum is designed to involve children in experiences that enhance awareness, freedom, musicality, movement, art and socialisation. Through Freeplay, all areas of development are fostered. Parents are welcome to be inspired and learn with us the Art of Education.

What we teach the best? Surely the Sense of Freedom

We are an advocate for Rudolf Steiner's Science of Freedom.  Children who are free from typical characteristics and groupthink will build a better inclusive society because they will be less formatted and less divisive. We believe future leaders need to be free thinkers in order to build a better world.
