Whole Beings® was founded on the belief that every child should be taught holistically, seeing sole focus on ‘academic’ intelligence as an outdated way to look at education. Through innovation, strong belief & Divine guidance these women are sharing a message that they wholeheartedly believe has the power to change the way the world thinks of education.
Elysia and Nat share the inspiration behind starting whole beings, both graduated university with a bachelor of education and found once out in the field teaching, that unfortunately the holistic approach that they were taught during their studies of being inclusive of the whole child and nurturing the whole child wasn’t reflected in the current school system.
With this missing gap they dreamt up the idea of a school readiness program to prepare pre-school children for school, in a mindful and holistic way and the business has grown and evolved since and now includes pre-school and home-schooling curriculums.
