OUR PHILOSOPHY

Wilson Christian Academy education program is grounded in traditional and well-established early childhood educational philosophies.  Therefore, our program contributes understanding that support teachers in maintaining a cohesive purpose:  improvement of the life chances of culturally diverse children through formal education.  

 

We strive to foster an ethic of social responsibility among our children and we urge students to acquire and use all the resources of their culture that can be implemented into our program.

As educators, we believe that all children have a right to respect, regardless of their abilities.  We provide an environment that is safe yet stimulating, and a curriculum that challenges them through creativity, self-choice, and learning through play. Therefore, our program supports the following philosophy about children and their growth:

  • Each child individually learns in different ways, at a different pace, by different approaches and at different ages of maturation.

  • A positive self-concept develops in children who can fulfill their goals, accomplish tasks on their own, and cooperate with others and receive positive feelings from others.

  • Self-disciplined children can direct their efforts towards fulfillment of their goals. Children learn self-discipline through understanding, commitment, and reinforcement.

  • Self-reliance is achieved by allowing children to do as many things for themselves as they are capable of, but keeping in mind new skills.
