What is Enki Education?

Enki Education is an independent program that strives to recognize wisdom and vitality wherever they arise. In this spirit both the classroom and homeschool curriculum are informed by the work of several leading educators and a variety of methods. Central among these are:

  • the multicultural focus of the United Nations International School,
  • the integrated arts approach of Waldorf Inspired Programs,
  • the skill building techniques of traditional Western education,

  • the independent project learning of theme studies programs, and

  • the focus on neurological development of Sensory Integration Programs.


Although we are grateful to those who have gone before, Enki differs markedly from both Theme Studies and Waldorf Inspired Programs, as well as all other approaches. The Enki approach, known as Developmental-Immersion Mastery weaves together many rich and diverse elements in order to support our fundamental premise - that the integration of body, heart and mind is key to cultivating educational excellence, confidence, and competence. At all grade levels, whether in classroom or homeschooling programs,  all academics are taught using a three fold process. This process begins with the arts and opens to full mastery of skills and concepts. In this way, we nurture the whole child, weaving together a coherent program including academics, arts, story, activities, movement, and exploration to bring about deep learning and growth. The resulting strong and broad foundation enables the students to meet the world head-on, in a compassionate, flexible, and creative manner.

Since 1993 the Enki approach has been used in homeschools, and in independent elementary and junior high schools in the U.S. and Canada.

Currently, Enki is most involved in publishing both classroom and homeschool curriculum materials, running homeschool programs and teacher training programs, and consulting with both Homeschool and Classroom teachers.
