Kids Hub promotes the holistic development of children.
But, what is the meaning of holism and what is holistic education?
Holism (from ὂλος holos, a Greek
word meaning all, whole, entire, total) is the idea that all the properties of a given system
(physical, biological, chemical, social, economic, mental, linguistic
, etc.) cannot be determined or explained by its component parts alone. Instead, the system as a whole determines in an important way how the parts behave.
Holistic education is a philosophy of education based on the premise that each person finds identity, meaning, and purpose in life through connections to the community, to the natural world, and to humanitarian values such as compassion and peace.
