Early Childhood Education

  • The best way to prepare children for their adult life is to give them what they need as children.
  • There are times when children are especially able to learn particular things.
  • What children can do (rather that what they cannot do) is the starting point of a child's education.
  • Children are people who have feelings, ideas and relationships with others, and who need to be physically, mentally, morally and spiritually healthy.
  • Subjects such as mathematics and art cannot be separated; young children learn in an integrated way and not in neat, tidy compartments.
  • Children learn best when they are given appropriate responsibility; they are allowed to make errors, decisions and choices, and are respected as autonomous learners.
  • Relationships with other people (both adults and children) are of central importance in a child's life.
  • Imagination, creativity and all kinds of symbolic behaviour (reading, writing, drawing, dancing, music, mathematical numbers, algebra, role play and talking) develop and emerge when conditions are favourable.
  • Quality education is about three things: the context in which learning takes place, the knowledge a child has gained and the understanding he/she has developed.
  • Self-discipline is emphasized. Indeed, this is the only kind of discipline worth having. Reward systems are very short-term and do not work in the long-term. Children need their efforts to be valued rather than rewarded.
