The Importance of Child Initiative
At GCS we teach our preschoolers curiosity, creativity, confidence, and compassion. Teachers direct small-group activities to encourage students to discover their strengths, interests, and build problem solving skills. One of our goals is focusing on child initiative, starting with exploring children’s interests during circle time. This is followed with children planning, allowing preschoolers to develop self-regulatory skills.
The Next Level of Multicultural
GCS takes learning to the next level by giving the opportunity to collaborate with schools from different countries and cultures. Working together in multicultural environment allows children to build their multicultural mindfulness and global citizenship through thinking and practicing different languages. Children will learn how to manage themselves with long term projects and connecting with different multilingual schools, it grants deeper learning with theme and phenoma.
Global Perspective in the Classroom
Long project based activities teach resilience challenges. Children practice gardening outdoors to learn essential nurturing skills. Wholesome learning happens through integrating writing, reading, science, technology, engineering, and math skills. Keeping a global perspective is critical in our classrooms, we continue to teach about different cultures and backgrounds for a rooted understanding behind each language being taught. Languages, culture, and geography for multicultural collaboration are included in day to day activities.
