*Promote Social/Emotional Skills
Children will develop a sense of positive self worth that will demonstrated be in his/ her interactions with peers and adults. Our students will feel good about themselves and their work here at P2 Learning Institute.
In achieving these goals, every child has the opportunity to be an active participant in the classroom. Our team is committed to helping the child achieve his/her own potential. This involves knowing each child's individual needs, how they feel and interact with others, which enables the team to plan appropriate activities and experiences with the curriculum.
