Why Choose Us?
Shall I whisper it to you?
Because, Teach Spraoi, Toonagh is a magic school. Yes, we weave magic spells. Listen up! ‘ Once upon a time, words began to vanish from the language of children. They disappeared so quietly that at first, almost no one noticed – fading away like water on stone. The words were those that children used to name the natural world around them: acorn, adder, bluebell, bramble, conker – gone! Fern, heather, moss, otter, raven, willow, wren…all of them Gone!
These beautiful words were becoming lost…
No longer vivid in children’s voices, no longer alive in their stories. Taken from The Lost Words by Robert Macfarlane. Choosing Teach Spraoi, Toonagh your child will be introduced to all the beauty of the natural world and form a strong and nourishing, respectful relationship with nature. If one does not know something or have the ability to name it we cannot love it. Teach Spraoi is blessed to have over two acres of a wild and beautiful environment and our own wood area. Not only will your children learn to form strong relationships with the environment but also with others and extend that out to build communities.
