Kids learn best through interacting with their world and through discovery. We use a hands-on approach throughout the curriculum and encourage kids to wonder and ask questions. I believe in taking kids where they are and finding ways to challenge and encourage them and take them as far as they can go in developmentally appropriate ways.
