Our Goals & Beliefs

Our goal is to promote within each child a strong sense of the following traits:

  • Self-esteem, self-respect, and self-worthiness
  • Confidence in one’s own ability to think
  • Confidence in one’s own ability to face daily challenges and changes in life
  • Personal autonomy and independence of one’s own ability to make choices (safely and respectfully)
  • Appreciation and understanding of diversity
  • Self-control based on one’s own desire to learn
  • Openness, honesty, and trust
  • Humor – An ability to enjoy, relax, have fun, and be happy
  • Desire to be innovative
  • A sense of belonging, being visible, being heard and understood, both emotionally and intellectually
  • Capability – A sense of believing in one’s own potential and always striving to master challenging activities
  • Autonomous thinking – Wanting to find answers to one’s own questions, not just the questions a teacher asks
  • Independence – Independent thinking, wanting to learn how to learn
  • Self-assertiveness – Feeling safe and competent to express one’s own thoughts, needs, and wants
  • Communication – An ability to be sensitive to and get along with and communicate openly

We Believe That:

  • A child’s creative play is a necessary precursor for knowledge
  • A child’s mind is qualitatively different from an adult’s
  • A child passes through stages of development in all areas and age ranges
  • All experiences can be welcome opportunities for learning
  • Each child must be given every opportunity to figure out their own way of doing things, their own way of experimenting
  • Logical classification, serration, and comparisons are major foundations of intellectual development
