“- Please tell me the truth; is there a Santa Claus?
- Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exist, and you know that they abound and give to your life its highest beauty and joy. Alas! how dreary would be the world if there were no Santa Claus. It would be as dreary as if there were no Virginias. There would be no childlike faith then, no poetry, no romance to make tolerable this existence. We should have no enjoyment, except in sense and sight. The eternal light with which childhood fills the world would be extinguished…”
(Francis P. Church - the Sun Newspaper 1897)KWhen my first daughter reached the school age, I decided to choose a school for her not just because of the things I could "see and hear" on the spot in that school. The most meaningful thing I did was to choose it intuitively with a strong belief in the kindness and goodness of those who have founded and developed that educational environment and those who are directly teaching and educating children with all enthusiasm and love for their job and for the children.
All the shortcomings in the education system I had seen and all the difficulties I experienced 10 years ago in the process of finding a school for my child, in both public and international institutions, led me to aspire and wish to build up a dream school myself for my own daughter and other children. With a belief that I can do it, with all my passion and creativity, with all the wishes coming from the heart of a mother, I did everything to build Wellspring into a dream school of children.
The fluctuations and endless changes of the times are making many of us skeptical about life, about education, and about kindness and goodness of people. But surely these things are never gone, they always exist everywhere around us.
If we have enough belief in good things, we will have enough strength to make them come true. Wellspring - the source of dreams, ambitions and passion about a School that lights up and nurtures dreams and passion, was established in that way.
Being accompanied by a team that shares the belief in the educational values that we have always pursued, I am happy and proud to have turned my thoughts, concerns and wishes to fulfill for my own children and those around into a proud educational model like the current Wellspring Education System.
At Wellspring, we believe that the best way to educate children first is UNDERSTANDING and AFFECTION. It is necessary for us to understand the souls, emotions, thoughts, needs and feelings of each child so as to develop all curricula, all activities, all plans and so on for the benefits, development and happiness of children, neither for the imposition of adults, nor for the accomplishment of adults’ goals. This has always been Wellspring's motto of education.
Children are growing sprouts, they will rise vigorously, become lush and green in a fresh environment which is watered with respect, integrity, love, kindness and mutual trust. Not anyone else, the people who create that environment and the source of nutrition are our teachers with their integrity and sincere love for children.
Wellspring has steadily gone through the trust building phase to the development phase. We wish to establish a new position for Wellspring Education System in the era of industrial revolution 4.0 – an era of artificial intelligence (AI) and internet of things (IoT), and cyber-physical system, which has created a flat, volatile, constantly evolving world with unpredictable changes in many fields and industries.
How can education really catch up, be real life and prepare for the future so that people will have the capacity to exist and develop in such a new world that none of us can imagine all the changes and the future of that world later on? How can the good values of kindness and the power to conquer dreams spread to more children and families so that our offspring can live in a better future society and always keep the purity in their souls and the fire of their belief in Santa Claus?
And again, the answer is CREATIVITY and PASSION throughout their life with kindness, and courage; dare to think, dare to dream, and dare to believe in order to dare to act for their own happiness and community. Human creativity to make a better, happier life is endless no matter how much Artificial Intelligence (AI) develops.
At Wellspring, we have been doing everything to give children a WELLSPRING, an educational environment filled with trust and passion, where dreams are always encouraged and nurtured, so that they can learn freely and creatively for a happier and better life, for a world we believe in and dream of.
Just believe, dream, love, and be creative and passionate with all your heart, we will make our dream world come true.
