  • Equips children to solve problems and find answers to their questions creatively.
  • Encourages higher-level thinking, development of intellectual interests and positive approaches to learning.
  • Supports the development of social-emotional skills such as resolving conflict, sharing responsibilities and working collaboratively.
  • Focuses on Science and Social Studies topics while promoting skills in Language and Literacy, Math, Technology and the Arts.
