Victoria School for Ideal Education

The Victoria School for Ideal Education, operating since 1988 is one of the earliest independent schools in Victoria offering outstanding education to children from Kindergarten to 8th Grade. The school is known for its well-maintained discipline and curriculum that focuses on deep learning skills. The Curriculum at the school begins with preschool which prepares children for success in Kindergarten because of their enhanced cognitive, social/emotional, motor abilities as well as physical health.

The school also focuses on meditation for kids. The sessions are practiced at the start and end of every academic day. They teach kids the ways of Transcendental Meditation, which is an easy way to meditate which helps kids stay calm and focused throughout their time in school. This kind of meditation also helps with cognitive reasoning which pairs well with academic subjects.

Children are taught to be positive and think outside the box – outside of what is normal for their age group.

There is no doubt that the Victoria School for Ideal Education is setting the standard for other schools around Victoria.
