Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based, Teacher-Led, Co-op

From the Director:

Since 1979, Forever Young has created a learning environment that is non-violent and gender-neutral which respects the diversity of all ethnic and cultural viewpoints. Forever Young uses the teachings and methods of many early childhood development experts; however, our basic philosophy can be summarized as respect for each individual child and his or her developmental level. Consequently, we stress choice in activities, independence, exploration and self-sufficiency. We believe that healthy, happy and confident children are successful children!
