Educational Approach


Our philosophy is to be carried out by emphasizing the child’s abilities, competences, and natural aptitude, developing and fostering the child in ways that encourage the development of new and inherent talents. These qualities will in turn allow the child to embark on and prosper in life with confidence and skill, especially in his or her future educational endeavors. In addition, learning will take place through positive relationships and caring adults.

We believe that all children have a right to high quality education. At the core of this concept is the child’s natural curiosity of their world coupled with a respect for the countless qualities and values that we believe each child is born with. Along with the support of parents, teachers, and the community, children will build their learning and development with determination and enthusiasm while learning how to discover knowledge and improve their communication skills as they plan and make decisions in small groups. They will become prepared to successfully excel in their lives as well as in their elementary, middle, high school, and university education, on which their future success will so greatly depend.


Our Curriculum

Our curriculum and principles align with the universal early childhood principles that the World Forum Foundation has found to best support children’s learning and development. The World Forum Foundation is an international early childhood education research and advocacy group that works to improve the quality of life for all children, regardless of their background. High-quality programs such as ours utilize the research and resources of the WFF as part of our professional development for teachers and to inspire others in our communities to advocate for the rights of young children.
