Cedarwood Calendar

The need for an effective, truly human education has never been greater than it is today. Our times call out for individuals who can recognize needs and bring right initiatives to the world. To achieve this, children need schools in which childhood is appreciated and allowed to unfold, and where capacities s of imagination and intelligence, of courage and fortitude, o f practicality and skill are gradually awakened, nurtured, and strengthened.
