Each child is considered an educator, bringing their prior knowledge into the classroom. They are encouraged to expand upon their understanding of different concepts through:
- Center-based play instruction models. Students will engage in various planned activities with environmental changes to accommodate new content.
- Center-based instructions and play will evolve, allowing children more complex levels of thoughts and interaction within their environment.
- Students are encouraged to explore a concept, not memorize it. Project-Based Assessment: Teachers use the arts as a symbolic language through which the child can express their understanding.
- Child-centered themes: The child's interests will help guide the teachers planning.
- Infant room to learn sign language and communication built on infants cue. (a technique in understanding infants body language and cause/ effect relationships.)
Teachers, essentially researchers, pay careful attention to your child's interactions, observing and analyzing their ability to understand, comprehend and build upon a concept.
