The Future Proof Project


SCROLL DOWN

The Future Proof Project


The Future-Proof Project. 

The whole child for a whole new world.

The world our children will inhabit is vastly different to the one we live in today. How they learn will determine how well they will thrive.

At Montessori East we have a vision to redefine today's education by giving more children access to an education system that facilitates self-growth and self-directed learning. Founded by a scientifically-proven pedagogy that combines children, families and community.

 

 

By putting the child at the centre of everything we do thereby allowing them to self-direct their studies. They will become lifelong, adaptive learners who can move with the fast pace of change around them, and who have the human skills machines can’t replicate. They will be able to actively shape a world that is capable of faster change than each person in it.

 so more children can thrive and shape tomorrow's world. By creating a purpose-built community campus for teachers, parents and children. An open source education resource that can be replicated around the globe and offering programs from 0-18 years, parents and teachers.

Based on an The Future-Proof Project wants more children to have access to an education that facilitates self-growth. is about preparing children for a world we can't yet imagine.Led by Montesssori East,  It is about redifining today's education so more children can thrive and shape tomorrow's world. what school is, and what excellence is in education; cultivating creativity, diverse talents and a global perspective.  It will combine education, families and community with a proven pedagogy.

A central hub for open resource learning. A centre that puts the child at the centre.

 

 

 

o   An immediate redefinition of education is necessary for this rapidly changing world.We need to support students in their development of abilities that will enable them to prosper in a future we can’t yet imagine.

The Future-proof Project.

 

The Future Proof Project is about preparing children for a future that we do not yet know, and which we can't yet imagine. All education aims to prepare children for the future, but not all educational approaches can deliver. 

An immediate redefinition of education is necessary for this rapidly changing world.We need to support students in their development of abilities that will enable them to prosper in a future we can’t yet imagine. 

The Future Proof Project aims for more children and their families to have access to an education that puts the child at the centre of learning and prepares children for change itself. 

 

A Future Proof child self-directs their learning, believes in their own ability to be an active agent in shaping a world that is constantly changing and who have has the opportunity to develop their own unique human skills machines can't replicate.
