Currambena is a democratic school based on Sydney’s North Shore that offers truly child centered education for both pre and primary school. It is a secular and co-educational school which has been running since 1969.
We are committed to providing an alternative to mainstream education, developing all aspects of each child. Our philosophical approach to education is based on a commitment to the joyful pursuit of lifelong learning, celebrating the uniqueness of each child developing a nurturing community to support children’s development, supporting our professional educators so they can promote learning with energy and passion, honouring the role of the parents, teaching and modeling effective communication and open governance.
At Currambena we deliver a holistic approach to learning, with the help of a flexible curriculum, which focuses on developing a child’s skills for life as well as high academic standards. We routinely incorporate valid theories in education, child-development and conflict resolution to complement our rich experience of providing alternative education.
