Child-centred learning – putting children at the centre of learning process - is one of our principal teaching styles. It helps us to achieve two main goals:
To increase the children's knowledge, experience and understanding;
To produce life-long learners with high self-esteem, a strong sense of self, a commitment to community and skills to live a full and happy life.
Child-centred learning is effective because it allows children to take a learning path of personal discovery. It provides them with an opportunity to confront new information and challenges, of their choosing, when they are ready, with the result that they gain self-confidence and retain their love of learning.
It also acknowledges that fact that not every child learns in the same way: some children learn through listening, some through reading and others by doing. Our school allows children to learn in the way that best suits them, while providing opportunities for them to improve other skills. This approach also encompasses the different types of intelligence (including social skills and self-knowledge) that children need in order to become whole, happy, successful human beings.
