Imagine a school where learning is about play and exploration
Small Acres School closed in July 2017.
Thank you to all the wonderful families, interns and inspiring people who helped to make this project such a success.
This website will remain up until January, 2018. Please make use of it if you are interested in democratic education.
Although there are over 40 democratic and humanistic schools worldwide with similar philosophies, we are excited to be one of the very few in this country. We give children the opportunity to learn in their own time and in their own way. We offer flex-schooling to children between the ages of 5 and 11. We offer trials to children between the ages of 4years 9 months and 8 years. At this time we are not accepting children over the age of 8 years who have not had previous experience of democratic education.
Information meetings for interested parents are held on a termly basis.
