Educational Approach (Fundamental/Developmental)
As a parent we often desire the best for our children. We often gauge what we providing them are the best by a yard-stick known as “achievement”. Educationist captured by this thought and became result oriented. Result became first priority forgetting that the key for a successful person in adulthood is based on the process of LEARNING. What learning is not – it is not about regurgitating sets of result but is comprise of the following 3 aspects:
- The Act or Experience new things
Learning is about experiencing, discovering, exploration the cause and effect, by doing so – expanding ones horizons beyond the limit. Many scientist, Noble prize winners and world leaders today found new discovery because of the desire to learn. If we are able to inculcate this desire in our children we have done the first part of education. In Junior Champs we endeavour to bring learning experience in a fun way, through enjoyment children learn new things, we introduce new discovery and encourage children to explore beyond what they were limited. When a child loves to come to school and interacts with teachers is a good sign that they are progressing in learning because it is safe for them to discover and we provide new challenges to expand their imagination and thoughts
- Knowledge or skills acquired
Knowledge or skills are acquired by instruction or study. Children learn by experience and by instruction or to study. These comprises of cognitive, motor and social development. In Junior Champs we emphasis on these developments and curriculum are designed to cater for early childhood developments. What studying is not – studying is not only memorizing or regurgitating results whereas it involves applying the mind to the acquisition of knowledge as by reading, investigation and reflecting. You will find in Junior Champs, we provide ample reading corners for reading habits to be cultivated. One of my favorites is a reading corner with mosquito netting covering – a very calm and conducive environment to cultivate reading habits and reflections. We have dedicated areas for science discovery and construction corners for those like investigation and role play .
- Modification of a behavioral tendency of experience
In short it is about conditioning our children through a positive atmosphere of love, encouragement, adapting to failures, and facing challenges. In Junior Champs we endeavor cultivate 9 behavioral conditioning – love , joy , peace , patience , kindness , goodness, faithfulness and self-control. Through it we endeavor to bring about good character such as honesty, integrity, respect, discipline and persistence. Character transformation is utmost important aspect of success in person-hood, relationships , marriage , individual and career. It is the mold to successful life that each parent desires for their children.
