    Learning by being provided with cooperative activities to co-construct or extend knowledge of how the world works; it builds on the Experiential Learning Method through social interaction

    Students will be guided towards answers/solutions through consistent feedback and scaffolding in a peer/teacher assisted teaching process

  • Student-centered classroom approach allowing for teachers to use their specialized education, skills, and the understanding they have of their students to teach them and direct their learning in productive ways in a flexible, open, diverse manner according to proposed curriculum and pedagogical methods.
  • Complementary to the Experiential Learning and Zone of Proximal Development methods, our teaching focus is on developing children’s:

  • Social development and sense of community, responsibility to contribute even in small ways (e.g., list of classroom tasks, tree planting, school garden activities);
  • Sensitivity to and understanding of multiculturalism fostering acceptance of other cultures through cross-cultural exposure such as, field trips, workshops, year-round festivities and celebrations, guest speakers, cultural awareness presentations.

Children represent the future generation.

In an ever-changing world, it is important they acknowledge and cope with the diversity of social and global issues.We do not know how the future will look like, and yet we need to educate for it maintaining children’s innate curiosity, assigning them meaningful tasks, seeing and growing their creative capacities.

‘We may not see the future, but our children will and our task is to help them make something of it.’ (Ken Robinson)
