At the learning studio, we establish a caring and supportive environment where all children are provided the opportunity to become lifelong learners. We set a priority of recognizing and respecting each learner’s special abilities and guide them to their own personal success. Through our caring environment, each learner’s intrinsic motivation and curiosity is channeled into student-guided learning opportunities. Opportunities for collaborative learning include a variety of hands-on experiences.
Over the course of the year, literature and writing topics are explored within a historical and scientific theme. In the area of science, the studio focuses on engineering and design principles to supplement grade level instruction taking place at home. In social studies, a studio-wide historical theme is selected. With both science and social studies, grade level content-specific standards should be studied in the home and the studio will provide resources to support this.
