Think about the adults you most admire. Are they people who can reason and solve problems? Are they curious and flexible? Can they integrate information from a range of perspectives? Do they know how to relate well to others, and how to make and sustain friendships?
When thinking about how to educate young children, it makes sense to keep in mind the characteristics we value. In our half-day program we want children to become socially competent, learn to engage others of all ages, know when to ask for help, learn to resolve conflicts, and practice flexible thinking. We want them to connect ideas, take risks, benefit from mistakes, grow in empathy, and become life-long learners.
If you value these characteristics as much as we do and are excited to learn more about our program, we invite you to explore the rest of our website and visit us on campus.
