Students must do more than just listen to learn- they must read, write, discuss, and be engaged in solving problems. We engage the children we work with in various activities, because we believe learning is not a spectator sport. Students do not learn much just by sitting in class listening to teachers, memorizing pre-packaged assignments, and spitting out answers. They must talk about what they are learning, write about it, relate it to experiences, and apply it to their daily lives. They must make what they learn part of themselves in order to retain the information. Children in our care experience many hands-on activities including field trips, projects and community involvement events.
