Novelist Marcel Proust stated, "We
don't receive wisdom or knowledge, we must discover it for ourselves
after a journey that no one can take for us or spare us." Although
children may resemble each other in their patterns of development, every
young boy or girl perceives and discovers the world through their own
experiences, interests and learning styles.
Every child is truly unique, therefore it is essential to begin with the child, using his/her cues as a guide to direct how we teach. Children construct their own knowledge of the world as they transform their ideas and engagements into logical and intuitive sequences of thought. Through intentional teaching we will scaffold on the expressions and interests of our students to provide them with skills that will prepare them for kindergarten and later accomplishments in life.
Our commitment towards nurturing the development of children, and our hope that we can always view the world through the eyes of a child, directs our passion as early childhood educators.
