  1. Dear Team,
    Finally a different school! I would have loved something like this for my daughter who is now a bit too old for your school.
    There are 2 things on my mind: I am a Physiotherapist (in Houghton) passionate about treating children with different challenges. Do you except children with Neurological challenges into your school ? I have a child in my practice with a hemiparesis and the parents are currently searching for a more mainstream school instead of sending him to Forrestown school. Would you need a Physio to come to your school and work there with kids who need it. I would love to do that if the need arises. Kind regards and all the best for your new project. Ursula

  2. I was very impessed by your website. I initially heard about you through the Joburg’s Child mag.
    My daughter is 2 and half, but my quest for a holistic education for her is upper most in my mind.
    I am reasonably familiar with Waldoff’s schools, but quite like your approach,…bearing in mind I have until 2015 to make up my mind. you are welcome to contact me none the less. Regards, Beverley
