Description: We believe that children will learn best by exploring their natural curiosities at their own pace. The learning is hands-on and interactive. The emphasis is on our children becoming whole, balanced and healthy individuals.
SpringStone’s philosophy is for the children we serve to grow and learn in a rich, educational environment, with loving caring staff and maintain safety at all times. We provide a hands-on classroom with learning materials for all of the main areas: practical living, sensory, math, art, music, language as well as geography, history and science. Absorbing a broad understanding of the world through hands-on materials, the children move about freely, choosing their “work” with responsibility and freedom. Their independence and self-confidence grow as they learn through projects that allow them to learn as individuals, at their own pace and to reach toward their full potential.
When children begin as toddlers at SpringStone, they show qualities of enthusiasm for learning and love of work. They have concern for others, concentration, a drive toward excellence, orderliness and a joy of learning. It is inspiring to see most of the 4 and 5-year olds casually reading to each other, confident in the knowledge that they taught themselves to read!
Education is not what the teacher gives; education is a natural process spontaneously carried out by the human individual, and is acquired not only by listening to words, but by experiences upon the environment. The task of the teacher becomes that of preparing a series of motives of cultural activity, spread over a specially prepared environment, and then refraining from obtrusive interference. Doing so, they will be witnesses to the unfolding of the human soul and to the rising of a New Man who will not be the victim of events but will have the clarity of vision to direct and shape the future of human society.
