Dr Nicolene du Preez and Peter Philips are on a joint venture to re-imagine education. With COVID-19 as the catalyst for change, in just 3 months a local Balinese community came together to build the Open Flow Learning Centre after many years of ideation and vision between these two educators. Located in the centre of Bali, Indonesia the local and global connections are undeniable with everyday bringing fresh experiences to the international and local children that attend.
The Open Flow Learning Centre's foundations are rooted in a place-based approach to Agile Learning, Design Thinking and Well-being. The anatomy of our learning program is delivered through the basis of Inquiry, STEAM and Project-based learning. We value the interconnectedness we draw upon from other education philosophies and approaches to learning with children at the centre utilizing true self-directed learning.
Between them, Nicolene and Peter share a decade’s worth of experience teaching across a diverse range of educational philosophies throughout Australia, South Africa and Indonesia but have found home nestled in this naturally majestic and culturally rich Indonesian community.
