Anything that is worth teaching can be presented in many different ways. These multiple ways can make use of our multiple intelligences

Howard Gardner

We don’t teach about children’s interests; we teach through children’s interests

As children are open to a wide range of experiences, at Arkie we include many different opportunities for each child because what is included or excluded from a curriculum will impact how children learn, develop, and understand the world.  It also provides children with a lot of choice as we do not subscribe to a one size fits all approach and aim for each child to feel included in the learning environment.

Children are active participants in their learning journey.  A day at Arkie is very much lead by what children are interested in at the time, as we take cues from them through our observations.
