  • At Serendipity Early Care And Education, the focus is on child-centered activities.
  • This means that the choices are left for the children to make.
  • This teaches initiative and independence because the choices are not being made for them.
  • At Serendipity, children activities center on objects and experiences that develop more fully their understanding of what they can see, touch, hear, smell and taste.
  • Children's natural curiosity and desire to make sense of their world motivates them to become involved in learning activities.
  • We learn best what we do by ourselves, or as Piaget put it: "Every time we teach a child something we prevent him form discovering it himself.".
