About Bahay-bahayan ni Mariang Makiling
Bahay-bahayan ni Mariang Makiling (BBMM) is a parent-initiated school conceived in response to the need for holistic education for children.
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.
Bahay-bahayan also has reference to going back to home, which we believe is every individual’s goal – to cultivate one’s mind, body, and spirit in service of self, others, and society. Verily, we become true to the nature of education, which is from the Latin roots “educare” or to train or to mold, and “educere” or to draw out or to bring forth. Hence, BBMM seeks to draw out values inherent in human beings, rather than treat them as receptacles of learning waiting to be filled.
Bahay-bahayan ni Mariang Makiling is anchored on a Steiner-inspired curriculum. Also known as Waldorf education, this is an educational philosophy based on the spiritual-scientific research of the Austrian scientist and thinker Rudolf Steiner. This philosophy strives to integrate the intellectual, practical, and artistic development of students.
Together with Bahay-bahayan, the Steiner philosophy believes in experiential learning. We see students develop their lifelong learning and never lose touch of their sense of awe and wonder. We see students who do not simply know the right answers, but more importantly they know how to ask the right questions. We see students who take charge of their learning and demonstrate sense of responsibility and social competence.
