Our vision in our Junior Kindergarten classroom

Our Vision for Children

Our Vision for ChildrenWe aim to join the children on their journey of growth, change and development as an individual through their discovery of self and their relationship with others.  We hope to guide the children to see who they are, to find their place in their world and to have awareness of their strengths and to gain confident in whom they are.  We see children as able, caring and affectionate people, and we aim to nurture their kindness and love in their friendships.  We regard the child as a theorist whom is constantly creative and transforming their own theories, their ideas and their thoughts.  We strive to foster co-construction and collaboration among children to recognize and respect similarities and differences in the perspectives of others.  We want to support the children as explorers to be curious in their play, active in their thinking and reflective in their thoughts.  We value the culture of the child and we aim to nurture and preserve their customs, traditions and values of their family culture.  We see children as adventurers full of life, excitement and enthusiasm, and we want to join the children in holistic living – in this love for living each day in mind, body and spirit.

Our Vision for Families

Our Vision for FamiliesWe strive for a strong sense of community by creating opportunities for rich, meaningful, authentic and intentional relationships with and between families. We strive to place the utmost importance on building bridges between our school and the home to effectively create a smooth transition for both the child and family and to strengthen communication and togetherness as a community.  We see families as our collaborators, our support, and resource in creating a learning environment which encompasses difference perspectives, as we recognize the primary importance of the child’s family and culture. We believe each new family brings culturally rich ideas and interests that contribute to the foundation and history of the school and its evolution.  We hope to provide families a memorable experience as we engage in a shared passion and commitment to all children.

Our Vision for Teachers

Our Vision for TeachersWe see ourselves as researchers and collaborators, and aim to observe constantly, to think critically, to reflect thoughtfully and to act intentionally.  We believe in the importance of a professional development and the value of learning.  We see learning as a process for ourselves and for children, and that we are ever changing and forever learning.  We believe in the benefits and power of learning with others.  We strive to be seen and heard as individuals, and respect and appreciate diversity amongst others as teachers.  We invite each other to challenge one another to continuously gain new insight and perspective to maintain the highest quality of competency, experience and knowledge.  We want to be as curious, passionate, loving and as committed to being and learning with children tomorrow as we are today.
