Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Teacher-Led

From the Director:

Joyful!♥♥♥♥♥ Our goal at Kidspace of Foley is to provide a rock solid foundation for years of joyful learning. We believe learning should be joyful, not only today, but also tomorrow and all the tomorrows to come. Joyful learners have a strong sense of self and strong social skills. ♥ We have a genuine interest and concern for each child. ♥ We provide time and opportunities for children to get to know each other and develop friendships. ♥ We create an atmosphere of caring. We care for each other and we care about learning. ♥ We practice sharing and cooperation skills with the children. ♥ We know that it's a priority for children to learn how to label, verbalize and manage their feelings. ♥ We encourage children to learn how to respect other's feelings. ♥ We encourage children how to develop self-control through role playing, modeling and practice. ♥ We encourage children to learn and practice the virtue of patience. ♥ We encourage children to take responsibility for the care of the classroom environment. Joyful learners participate in developmentally appropriate activities. ♥ We give children rich experiences in the arts and sciences. ♥ We use a variety of instructional approaches that are multisensory, engaging, and honor children's diverse learning styles. ♥ We know that a curriculum that is true to the spirit of childhood acknowledges that creativity and critical thinking join hands. ♥ We know that active learning promotes literacy and fitness and is consistent with how the young child's brain learns best. ♥ We know that music and singing provide a relaxed, joyful mood -- the perfect state for language learning. Music and rhymes are powerful hooks to long-term memory. ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ Kidspace of Foley 15397 Hwy 59 943-4652
