Morning Circle

Morning Circle is a speciality in Neo-Humanist Education. It is a time when the children gather together to enjoy each others company and explore their own inner thoughts and emotions.

Key elements present in these lessons are songs, dances, meditation, visualisations and yoga. Story telling and stories are an integral part of Morning Circle. They are used to inspire, encourage contemplation and express virtues such as honesty,
courage, respect, love for animals, plants and all people.

The role of teachers in these lessons is to provide a structural Foundation to equip children with the skills and opportunities.


This is our ‘quiet time’. Children benefit from early use of their imagination and intuition in creative visualisation and meditation exercises. Yoga exercises help children stretch and relax, and discussions at this time centre on the virtues and other introspective topics.
