Inspiring your child’s unique potential begins before kindergarten and continues throughout the foundation years. Dewford’s philosophy is based on John Dewey’s four principles of education;
- Learning by doing
- Discussing and making decisions based on reasonable arguments
- Interacting with the environment; and
- Interdisciplinary learning
Dewford learning environment is much different than the traditional models. Instead of simply passing from the teacher to the student, our teachers are skilled at putting the child in touch with the environment, and helping him or her learn to make intelligent choices and to carry out research in a prepared environment.
