Every month, Kid Village incorporates two lifelong values into our curriculum. These values include things like Team Work, Honesty, Friendship, Gratitude, etc. We believe these values are vitally important to our children becoming healthy, happy, well-rounded adults, and believe early exposure to these values can help them become more positive contributing members to society.
At Kids Village we don’t just believe in educating children so they can pass tests; we truly and deeply believe in giving them the knowledge, skills, and mindsets that will help them to be successful in their lives.
We actuate this philosophy by combining Saxon Curriculum (which focuses on lifelong learning as opposed to assessment-centric learning), workshop classes that teach lifelong skills, and a commitment to teaching positive mindsets that will influence our students positively for the rest of their lives.
Academic and Workshop teacher incorporate these monthly values into their lessons each day, using teaching tools such as storytelling, role-playing, classroom discussions, books, worksheets, and more.
We will also post a blog article each month (which we will share through our social media channels) that discusses strategies for incorporating these values in your own home, whether it’s through conversations, leading by example, games or activities. This article will also talk about why we chose the value for our Kids Village Values curriculum and why it is important in early childhood development.
At the end of the month, your child will be given a colorful writsband to celebrate when he or she demonstrates understanding and mastery of the monthly value.
