The children learn through their experiences in craft, baking, drawing and modelling; through the imaginative use of natural materials in their creative play and games; in outside play; storytelling, songs, rhymes, and the celebration of special occasions.
Young children are very open to their environment, and their capacity to live deeply into all that surrounds them is at the root of their learning. We call that capacity imitation. We strive to provide an environment worthy of imitation, where children can play imaginatively and creatively, which will lead in turn to a solid and creative capacity for thinking and a lively intellectual life.
We strive to present our students with a world of beauty, which will nurture their sense of ease, joy, and peace.
The children benefit from a strong sense of routine and predictability, and we work with a clear and consistent rhythm for our daily and weekly activities. Music and verses accompanied by movement, stories, practical activities of cooking, gardening, sewing, and artistic activities of painting, modelling and drawing, all contribute to the balanced, joyful, and healthy development of the young child. This provides a strong foundation for the future development of the child’s social, academic and emotional life.
