  • To respect each child as a person with unique requirements for education.
  • Aiming to put education on display.

Children Make a Difference in the World Around Them

  • Children learn to identify with a group or community and know the rights and obligations that come with that membership.
  • Preschoolers naturally accept differences.
  • The concept of fairness is ingrained in the minds of children.
  • Children learn to respect others and their surroundings.

Children Have a Strong Sense of Wellbeing

  • Curiosity, cooperation, confidence, creativity, commitment, passion, persistence, imagination, and reflexivity are only a few learning dispositions that children cultivate.
  • Through play, children learn to think critically, ask questions, do experiments, form hypotheses, conduct research, and discover the truth.
  • To some extent, what children learn in one setting gets carried over into another.
  • Through interactions with others, places, technologies, and both natural and processed materials, children can become active agents in their own education.
