From the Director:
Our method places an emphasis on the learners' deep and meaningful understanding and their ability to create value for themselves and the world around them. We pride ourselves in being able to design, implement, and improve our innovative education system that does not have to uphold past centuries' methodologies, as is such with the once cutting-edge Montessori and Waldorf methodologies. We have thoroughly studied such methodologies and incorporated the aspects that have withstood more recent scientific scrutiny by child development experts, leaving the aspects that have not. The educational process takes the format of discover-imagine-create, where the students discover what exists, imagine what could be, and create something new. This format can be seen on every level - within each day, unit, year, and through the years. Building on the Discovery Method and Creative Problem Solving Process that are used in higher education, Discovery World has created a unique methodology and curriculum to teach children about the world around them and inspire them to innovate, bringing new concepts, artifacts, and experiences to the world. The Discovery World Method develops one's breadth of knowledge, confidence, and abilities through discovery-driven exploration and creation so that they can discover what is, imagine what could be, and do what they choose to put their mind to. Our methodology incorporates the aspects of the common play-based learning, Montessori, Waldorf, and Reggio-Emilia methodologies that have proved to be positive and effective over time.
