Our Philosophy

  • We believe that children understand and bring individual experiences about life and learning that we should honour and respect.
  • We acknowledge the child as a strong, competent and intellectual individual.
  • We view children as inquiring, curious and wondering individuals.
  • We see children as competent in the sense that they are open to the world, able to understand, know and learn from their individual experiences.
  • We believe children to be competent and ready to learn from the first moment of life.
  • We believe that children are competent in constructing their own identity and their own theories about life and their learning.
  • We perceive children as strongly motivated because they must “know” in order to live.
