Wild to Wise, Nature School provides an alternative to conventional forms of K-12 school for parents of children aged 3-20 in Pyay, Myanmar. We offer both Nature Play and Knowledge-Mind-Skill (KMS) process learning programs.We believe in educating the whole child head, heart and hands. We seek to cultivate a child’s natural capacities and develop in them a deep respect for the natural world.
The atmosphere of our school is unique because it is devoid of the bright plastic toys that are so often part of conventional preschool classrooms. Toys are made from natural materials such as wood, wool and clay. In our outdoor living class room children are entirely outside rain or shine in an effort to connect them to the rhythms of nature.
Our outdoor programs are unique to the local market and are on the leading edge of a trend that has swept across the nation. There are no nature schools in Myanmar. This is why we plan to promote our new way of learning and education model throughout the Myanmar which is part of a wider movement towards spreading the message of developmental readiness in children’s education. It is for these reasons that we believe enrollment into our programs will be consistent and as a result we will succeed in this growing marketplace.

We believe that young children should be afforded a nurturing environment that protects and shelters childhood, allowing children to grow at their own pace.
Wild to Wise, Early Childhood education principles are based on an understanding of stages of a child’s physical, emotional, intellectual, attitude, social and spiritual development.
We aim to prolong the natural sense of wonder each child has for their world by providing age appropriate harmonious development activities.
We believe that KMS process learning must address the whole human being – head (Knowledge), heart(Mind) and hands(Skill) – in a balanced way. By meeting the developmental needs of the child in all five main dimensions of perceiving (feeling), thinking, willing, working and keeping, we can best prepare them with the full range of skills and capacities needed for a meaningful life.
Children are taught the new way of thinking and are encouraged freedom of learning to be imaginative person who are great communicator and problem solver.
We believe that these important life skills empower children to become a wise person who are confident to ask the big questions:
Who am I? What’s it or happen? How can I work? What is my dream or where is my destination? Why should or shouldn’t I do? When would I do? (Know What, How, Where, Why and When.)
We help children figure out what they like, what they’re good at and understand that they have enormous potential. We help them find their reason to learn.
Finding the answers to these big questions is the fundamental purpose of education.
Children then feel confident about who they are and who they can be a wise person in their real life.
We utterly learn to know the comprehensive knowledge about child well-being: transformation and transition, and their life and environment (natural, physical, social, cultural, historical, political, economical etc.) relationship by focusing on their body and mind link to true nature.
we develop Integrated Nature Play and Knowledge-Mind-Skill (KMS) Process Learning to enable children to attain the greatest possible harmony; internal and external, spiritual and material, natural and virtual for whole child development of human potentialities and capacities, and offer fundamental guidelines principles and practice on the four main areas; personality, knowledge, skill and spirituality.
