Our intention has always been to give our children simple, yet thoughtfully prepared and lovingly executed birthday celebrations. This year, our family shared the happy occasion with Mayumi’s classmates, teachers, and our co-parents at Bahay-bahayan ni Mariang Makiling.
Bahay-bahayan ni Mariang Makiling (BBMM) is a parent-initiated and Steiner/Waldorf-inspired community homeschool conceived in response to the need for holistic education for children and their family.
Inspired by what can be called a universal form of play – the “Bahay-bahayan”, the school emphasizes the role of play in learning. In Bahay-bahayan, a child enters a world of possibilities prompted by what-ifs and kunwari. In the world of play, children are free to be who they are as their innate creativity naturally emerge.
