"Children are respected for their strengths, supported in their efforts to become well-balanced individuals, and encouraged to become intelligent, divergent thinkers.
An emphasis is placed on what a child does well, building on that to develop areas of challenge.
• Students are treated with respect and are given support and guidance as they develop
their social skills. Social/emotional development is considered as essential as learning to
read and write.
• The Awakening Seed curriculum is designed to evolve from and with the children and
staff. Children are highly motivated, self-directed learners because they are allowed to have
a voice in determining their learning experiences.
• The rich multicultural learning environment allows students to appreciate both the similarities
and differences we share as human beings. Many school activities include all ages
and foster a spirit of cooperation; thus creating a sense of family and community.
