About: School’s philosophy of teaching young learners
Children’s early learning experiences have a profound effect on their development. In kindergarten children’s receptivity to new influences and capacity to learn are at their peak. During this period they acquire a variety of important skills, knowledge, and attitudes that will affect their ability to learn, their personal development, their relationships with others, and their future participation in society.
Young children today begin to develop their skills, knowledge, and attitudes in a variety of environments – in their homes, in childcare and community settings, and in kindergarten programs. Positive early experiences with schools are of paramount importance to young children. The learning they do in kindergarten provides the basis for the acquisition of literacy skills (including technological and computer literacy), mathematic skills, and science skills. This learning prepares them for successful learning experiences in their later grades.
Children arrive at school with different backgrounds and knowledge and at different stages of development. To give each student the best start possible, it is essential that a kindergarten program provide a variety of learning opportunities and experiences.
We strongly believe that all teachers, early childhood educators, members of the community, and families must work together to provide constructive and consistent learning experiences that will build students’ confidence, encourage them to continue to see learning as both enjoyable and useful, and provide a strong foundation for their future intellectual, physical, and social development.
Another critical factor to keep in mind when teaching early learners is to use rhyme, repetition and review. Furthermore, we believe that it is vital to use a multiple intelligence approach in teaching for all subject areas in order to reach all learners. In fact, current research has proven yet again that using this type of approach is the most effective way for students to learn.
We feel that children should have every opportunity available to explore their learning environment, and be encouraged throughout their educational journey to ask questions!
