The time has finally come! The Riverstone Village admissions process is now open.
Riverstone Village is South Africa’s first democratic, self-directed (SDE) learning community. Democratic self-directed education is a cutting-edge best-practice educational model growing fast around the globe, because:
- it is so effective and gets such great long term results,
- it easily accommodates learning styles that can be difficult in most other models,
- it allows each individual to thrive, develop and master their unique talents and interests
- it embodies the full spectrum of children’s rights which can be compromised by many other models,
- and, best of all, because children love it and tell their friends.
To find out more about the theory and research behind SDE, go to self-directed.org. How do you find out more about Riverstone Village? Take your pick. You could:
