I'd like wish you a very happy new year. I wish you the best for this coming year, and hope you spent the holiday season among loved ones and friends. After a restful winter break, our students and teachers returned revitalized and ready to master 2019. In this second half of the school year, our students will continue working in our progressive program.
Our program combines the best educational approaches from multiple philosophies to create a unique learning experience, focusing strongly on mental health and socio-emotional development through our Life Skills classes. Through our work in Social Constructivism - we offer the opportunity for children to build and design their own theories in small Groups of Investigation. These small groups allow children to question, examine, create, solve, interpret, debate and think critically. Our Reggio Emilia inspired philosophy - shines a light on the principles of respect, responsibility and community, in the context of a rich learning environment (the third teacher). With the Montessori approach - we incorporate practical life skills into our daily routine, which empower the children to play an active role as a member of their home and school community. They have a sense of purpose and belonging.
These ideologies not only value the human spirit but also the development of the whole child – physical, problem solving, academic, social, emotional and creative areas.
Education is successful when children are inspired to delve broadly and deeply into learning. We have carefully developed this program, because we feel it is the best way to develop the whole child and prepare them for a lifetime of success. In order to accomplish this mission, we need the collaboration of you, the parents. When we partner together towards the same goals, we can accomplish the greatest thing – nurturing each individual child so they can become thoughtful, engaged, well-rounded citizens living as their authentic selves.
