MDE School believes that children learn best while experiencing all aspects of the curriculum in a developmentally appropriate classroom. Opportunities for learning occur at all times of the day and we capitalize on these opportunities as often as possible. Our teachers are trained to recognize these learning moments and guide children to make the best of them. The classroom is structured with an emphasis on language and communication to promote independence and self-advocacy.
We believe that teachers must lovingly guide and redirect the children to help them learn to cooperate with their peers to have positive, educational experiences that will encourage and enhance their growth and development.
It is our responsibility to model appropriate use of language and action at all times. We continuously provide opportunities to teach the children age appropriate skills for conflict resolution.
We encourage parents to communicate with the teachers and director to maximize the child’s total learning experience.
