Since 1993 the Enki approach has been used in preschools, home schools, and in independent elementary and junior high schools in the U.S. and Canada. Tour this site to see our work in action and learn about our approach.


ENKI TODAY: Today parents and teachers in Homeschools, Charter Schools, and Independent Elementary Schools are drawing from Enki Education to enrich and expand their progams. Unfortunately, due to the current economic climate, our full Enki elementary schools have had to close or substantially restructure. However, we continue to work with individuals and groups from across the US and Canada, from Europe, Asia, Australia, and South America, to bring the Enki approach into homeschools and to start independent and charter schools. We are hopeful that funding will open up again as the global economy stabilizes, enabling new schools to undertake the Enki approach.

ENKI AT A GLANCE: Get a quick and colorful glimpse of the core elements of our program and then tour the topics below for more detailed information.

APPROACH:
What is Developmental-Immersion Mastery? Learn about our philosophy and how in unfolds in the classroom.

In the Enki approach there are certain core threads that underlie all we do. These form the scaffolding on which all else is built. Whether we are working with five year olds or fifteen year olds, whether studying painting or science, whether we are refining old techniques or exploring new ones, this scaffolding is our base.

DAY IN THE LIFE: What actually happens in the classroom? How does the philosophy unfold in day to day life? Visit with us in several classrooms at different times of the day. Experience living moments in different subjects. Glimpse the different techniques used with different ages.

CONTENT AREAS: This section describes each of the content areas, from science to painting, and the underlying approach to teaching them in all grades.

THROUGH THE GRADES: In the course of growing up the child goes through a series of distinct stages, like the metamorphic process of a caterpillar becoming a butterfly. Careful attention to the challenges and opportunities unique to each stage guide our choices of both curricular content and teaching method. In this section you can follow a child as he grows through our curriculum.

THE SCHOOL COMMUNITY: Community is the human ecosystem. Therefore, in the Enki approach great care is given to developing a safe and stable community within each class and within the whole school. This includes an active and ongoing relationship with each of the families that make up the larger school community.
