STIMULATING THE CHILD'S CURIOSITY.
Our classrooms are bright, warm and inviting, filled with intriguing learning materials; fossils, mathematical models, puzzles, etc. The work is attractively displayed on low open shelves, each week we change some activities to fit the ever changing needs of the class.
DEVELOPING A SENSE OF COMMUNITY.
Learning how to work and play together with others in a peaceful and caring community is perhaps the most important life skill that we can impart to our children. The school is like an extended family, where the children learn to take care of themselves and each other.
CREATING A PEACEFUL WORLD BY CREATING A PEACEFUL CLASSROOM
Children normally find it difficult to tell us and each other how they feel. The peace table plays an important part in our classroom; two children having a disagreement will normally decide to retreat to the peace table to discuss and solve their problem.
Teaching peace involves finding a way to appreciate our differences and work together more effectively than ever.
FOSTERING LOVE, FRIENDSHIP, AND RESPECT
Everyday kindness and courtesy are vital practical life skills. Even the youngest child is treated by their classmates with dignity and respect.
BUILDING CONFIDENCE AND RESPONSIBILITY.
We encourage the elder children to develop an awareness of the needs of the younger children. They are the role models for the younger ones and will often show them how to do the work.
NURTURING INDIVIDUAL GROWTH AND INDEPENDENCE.
We recognize that our role as teachers is not so much to teach as help the children how to learn independently. We try to ask the right questions to challenge them to find the answers for themselves.
