Our Living Room – Formalities!
Building Block’s philosophy is based on a developmental approach, which emphasizes learning through play.
Activities for each developmental stage are selected to encourage and challenge children, without rushing them to learn skills for which they are not yet ready. This is supported through years of research in child development and by well known theorists such as Vygotsky & Piaget. While they have different perspectives on how play influences cognitive development, both find that it is the BUILDING BLOCK for children’s construction of knowledge. Children are involved in learning experiences, which are interesting, and give them daily opportunities to explore and discover the world through their senses.
At Building Blocks, we recognize that young children are very special people with unique personalities and individual needs. Together with parents, we can help our children to become avid readers, enjoy solving math problems, speak and write well, be creative, get along with others, and enjoy pre-school. These goals are met with respect for each child.
