We have created a community of adults who have made a promise to ‘trust children’ – difficult because to trust children we must trust ourselves. We have to break a long downward cycle of fear and distrust ingrained in us as children. This takes a long leap of faith. We are convinced that great rewards await any of us who will take that leap.
Those of us working in the school learn not only to love each child but more importantly to find each child individually interesting and worth looking at.
