Sophie’s Message

Do you remember what it was like to be a child?

Now that we have our own children, we are reminded to dream, to be creative, be free to play and have fun. I feel privileged to have the opportunity to work with such wonderful children, parents and educators and look forward to every joyful milestone. Every day the excitement on the children’s faces warms my heart as they embrace learning, triumph over challenges and make new discoveries.  It is with a great sense of fulfilment that I share their stories and ideas, their efforts and their achievements. Children play and play remarkably brings us all together. Play is natural, active, and highly motivating. To children, it is the ideal approach to their personal growth and positive learning. We know that children are the masters of play; they play the most and are most influenced by play. Their play is both serious work and pure fun. At its heart, it signifies nothing less than how they will experience the world. Children are naturally creative and do not have any preconceived notions that their world might be seen or acted out in a certain preset or narrow way. We have so much to learn from them and seeing the world through their eyes is truly enlightening.

 

Children are adventurers, discoverers and inventors. They flourish in a flexible yet predictable program, which supports their innovations efforts, abilities and ingenuity, in a caring, safe and nurturing environment. Children are supported in prevailing over challenges, to take acceptable risks, develop healthy levels of compromise and work out differences in an atmosphere of mutual respect while strengthening self-reliance and autonomy.  We support self-initiated methods of working out problems with cooperation and understanding, which foster trust and maturity.

 

Every child’s refreshing vision is nurtured to continue to grow and develop and the freedom for their creative endeavours is supported through an open-ended play framework. Children are free to explore their creativity, gain experience in working out solutions to their problems and have their discoveries reinforced. You are invited to join us and “Be Part of the Discovery.”

 

Albert Einstein said, “The formation of a problem is often more essential than its solution, which may be merely a matter of mathematical or experimental skill. To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle, requires creative imagination and marks real advances.”

 

Come in and be part of the discovery!
