Philosophy of Kindergarten

LLA's Philosophy Of Kindergarten
Children need love, compassion, and positive discipline while learning the basics of Reading, Math and Science and Technology. Kindergarten should be fun, stimulating and a good beginning for a child's academic, emotional, social, and spiritual development.

Teaching The Individual
Every child is a unique design by God. Therefore, curriculum and teaching methods must "match" the way the child learns. Teaching to learning styles and intelligences is crucial.

The Latest Reforms Of The 21st Century That Work
1. Individualizing the learning experience. 2. Real-world learning.
3. Early childhood intervention/special in-class programs.
4. Multi-age teaching.
