  • Children's curiosity and initiative are integral to their education.
  • Independence is a vital part of every child's development.
  • Working with others enhances children's growth in every domain.
  • Every person is a thinker, creator, and contributor.
  • The natural world is a place to learn.
  • Childhood should be fun, and children should find joy in learning.
