Children are natural explorers, capable of discovering and figuring out many aspects of life given the freedom and framework to do so.
We at Tender Tracks believe that by guiding each child’s inherent awe,wonder and curiosity about our Earth, they grow towards greater unity to self and all life. They embrace self-respect, self-confidence, self-awareness and self-esteem. These essential qualities help children weather the many challenges that life presents. Children learn through seeing, doing and being. Tender Tracks is filled with not only seeing and doing but also allowing the time needed for integration – BEING.
The children’s days are filled with adventures that develop motor skills and balance, communication skills, and stimulate all of their senses.
The art of questioning is an ongoing tool that builds the foundation of basic life skills of how to learn. The educators’ model this learning with enthusiasm, encourage investigation and problem solving.
The small group setting encourages safe exploration of their world and the development of social skills, including leadership, conflict resolution and cooperation, all in a developmentally appropriate style.
