It is our philosophy not to fit the child into the curriculum, but to assess what the child already knows and build on their individual needs and unique strengths making the curriculum work for them.
The students' sense of achievement and well-being are encouraged by our student-centered educational philosophy. The teachers believe in the importance of achievement based on the individual performance, instead of comparing the children to their peers.
Teachers encourage students to be more active in the classroom and to interact with one another. We focus on teaching our children how to be kind to one another, self expression and regulation, and the importance of using their words. We believe in the importance of modeling gentleness, using kind words, and set clear expectation throughout the day.
Teachers practice student-centered learning techniques encouraging students to learn by doing. Students are made more aware of the materials they are using and their endless possibilities of use. Classroom objectives are always clearly posted on the classroom message board for parents to see what their children are learning and working on in the curriculum. Students are encouraged to learn through activities such as dramatic play, circle time, center times, and other incorporated one-on-one activities. The goal of all activities is for students to gain skills that can be used in other areas in their lives.
