"Children develop and acquire skills through a predictable sequence of stages. At The Climbing Tree, we provide a learning environment that allows a child to build upon existing skills. Children accommodate new information by interacting with concrete materials and experiencing the environment through their senses.
Curiosity is an important method of learning for preschoolers. Children can learn best when they are given the opportunity to ask questions and find different solutions to a problem.
Repetition and imitation are necessary for learning to occur. As a preschooler repeats actions, songs, words, and routines, he/she increases skills and understanding. He/she observes and imitates others who model attitudes and actions.
At The Climbing Tree, we want to provide an atmosphere where a child feels loved and accepted for who he is – a special person created by God. Parents and teachers working together can support each other in providing positive learning experiences for our children. When this is accomplished, we both can look forward to the promise of Proverbs 22:6 (NIV), “train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it”. Children experience God’s love and a sense of self-worth through love and acceptance.
