Let your children grow with laughter, wonder, and knowledge
Whole Child Education. At Evergreen Kids Academy, it’s our belief that a child learns best when every aspect of a child’s development – cognitive, physical, social and emotional – is nurtured. Our Whole Child approach – based on the approach developed by Maria Montessori – concentrates on skills that include early literacy, logical thinking, problem solving,social understanding, physical coordination, creativity and positive character traits, such as cooperation and self-control. It is characterized by an emphasis on independence, freedom within limits, and respect for a child’s natural psychological development. By adhering to this philosophy to help nurture all of these areas of your child’s development, our goal is to create good citizens with a strong intellectual curiosity. At Evergreen Kids Academy, we believe education should be about more than memorization and repetition. We offer a completely different approach, with a unique, open environment that emphasizes your child’s natural interests and allows your child to set his or her own development pace. The practical application of sensory-based and self-directed learning for children is the most important thread that runs through our Toddler and Primary programs. Language, mathematics, spatial learning, self-discovery, music and art – they’re all incorporated into our approach. Every Evergreen Kids Academy teacher will work with your child to individually encourage her to explore the areas that excite and engage her. As children master an exercise, we guide them to the next appropriate challenge. Students will be treated as equals, and respected as individuals with their own unique thoughts, ideas, perspectives, and talents.
