started as a home schooling initiative set up for my own children. I wanted to
create a sensory-rich, nature-based, outdoor environment, where children can
learn at their own pace through personal choices and real life experiences. A
place where the surrounding nature can teach us about the elements of life,
where meal times and nutrition are considered a valuable practice and where
community and social interaction are at the heart of the programe. In September
2015, I invited other parents and children to join us. It didn't take long for
more people to take interest and before I knew it, we had over ten children
Now, we are a
growing international school for curious minds that fill our beautiful space
with inquisitive questions, novel ideas and enthusiastic energy.
Latin word for Earth -Terra- and the Kiswahili word for Heart -Moyo-, the name
we chose for our school represents the strong connection to our environment and
the way the children learn in a natural way, taking responsibility for their
own learning and having the freedom to explore and choose materials and
projects based on their interest.
International School currently offers education for children from 18 months to 7 years old. As the children grow, the School will grow with them, offering
nature-based quality education. We have a blended curriculum of Montessori,
Reggio Emilia, Waldorf and forest schooling, designed specifically for Terra
Moyo. With a dedicated and passionate international team of teachers and
support staff, we strive to provide a welcoming, unique, eco-friendly and
progressive learning environment for our Students.
With your support
and commitment, we believe we can create an incredibly inspiring and enriching
educational experience for our Students that will light the passion of learning
to last a lifetime.
Warm regards, Nike Kondakis, The founding director of Terra Moyo
