Each and every child has the potential to bring something unique and extraordinary to the world. We want to help children to develop their full potential by helping them believe in themselves. We assist children in discovering their individuality, helping to give them the confidence to express their own opinions and cultivate their own ideal.
Our classrooms present distinct communities of learners who vary in their abilities and learning styles. We desire to give children the tools that nurture the seeds of their individual learning, and that help them become valued members of the community. We focus on identifying the needs of each child so that all learners can feel capable and successful. We present lessons that engage the children’s interest, making learning relevant to their lives, and to the greater community. We utilize hand-on activities in themes, projects, group work, and individual work to help children become dynamic and passionate learners.
Teaching is a lifelong process of learning new philosophies, strategies, ideas, and processes. We learn from the parents, the community, our colleagues, and most especially, from the children. Children teach us to open our minds and hearts to joy, innocence, and curiosity. They remind us of the enormous diversity of ideas in the world. We cherish the gift of their presence in our lives, and always remember that they come first.
