How to Apply
Nautiluz is for families that are ready to be part of a learning collective actively transitioning from the current mainstream education practices, to the emerging methodology of Project Based Learning. This is a pedagogy that is rooted in supporting their children to learn in a way that both honours and appreciates their unique perspectives and gifts. In turn, the whole learning community, kids, parents, educators, the project team and supporters alike, actively practice respect, openness, curiosity, compassion and responsibility towards nature, each other and themselves.

We are a bilingual learning environment (Português and English) and will actively support the kids to learn and interact in both.
Diversity is key to our learning environment here at Nautiluz. We are committed to being a safe community for all learners, their families, and its cooperative members regardless of race and skin color, national origin and ancestry, religion, disabilities, gender (including gender identity and expression), and sexual orientation.
If your child has disabilities please get in contact with us about the access we currently have. Please note that we cannot cater for all Children with Disabilities at present. We are working on becoming inclusive for all Children with Disabilities as we move forward.
This year we will be open for enrollment for children between the ages 4-13. Our vision remains to provide education for students up to the age of 18 as we grow each year.
