Our values of integral, sustainable and innovative are the foundation of our Wondertree DNA.
We embrace the concept of DNA as the genetic instructions for the natural state of functioning and reproducing as part of a whole (belonging), living (being) and growing, developing and transforming (becoming).
At WonderTree, we constantly strive to live up to these values which guide the way we interact with our co-learners. They act as a blueprint for creating nurturing experiences for our co-learners to move through the natural states of belonging, being and becoming in this world.
Through being integral, sustainable and innovative, we have created an inspired community culture where each individual matters and uniqueness is celebrated as an essential part of the whole. Our commitment to these values is an invitation to all members of our WonderTree community to live an inspired life.
How we understand Who we are How we nurture
We recognize that we are citizens of one world, growing together in an atmosphere of protected freedom and harmony, and that we are integral to each other's ability to succeed.
We aim to develop and grow our well-being (social-emotional, spiritual, aesthetic, environmental cognitive, physical, global awareness) for a transformation that guides our journey towards self-mastery.
We cherish inspiration, a yearning to awareness, to unfold our potential and to serve the community for a better world.
How we connect Who we are How we care
Guided from our mission statement we respect where we come from in the past, embrace the belonging and being in the present and strive to become responsible citizens who sustain the future.
We cultivate attitudes like courage, honesty, fairness, kindness and forgiveness to become compassionate lifelong learners who are self-reflective, independent and inquiring thinkers who strive to have a positive impact on the world.
We embrace diversity and appreciate each other's ideas, cooperating and collaborating to find lasting solutions for improving the world.
How we express Who we are How we learn
We draw out the innate curiosity and creativity of each co-learner in a secure and inspiring atmosphere to create a growth mindset in confident and competent individuals who:
- Have a vivid mind that creates new things by connecting dots in new and meaningful ways
- Have an adventurous spirit, grit and enthusiasm for taking bold action, always looking for ways to improve and change and use mistakes and failure for their advantage
- Have passion, patience and persistence and use practice to succeed
- Recognize innovation is in the questions we ask, not necessarily in the answers they lead to
