Our Educational Philosophy With Our Middletown Community School
Children…and adults as well…naturally gravitate towards things that interest them. Using this reality, our curriculum is centered around the interests, strengths and needs of each child. Rather than force children into a mold that doesn’t suit them, we mold our curriculum to suit the child. Every child is an individual and they are treated as such. We address the needs of the whole child, not just their academics, to help them reach their highest potential. The following methodologies inspired the development of our curriculum.:
- Waldorf – Play based approach combined with structure and routines
- Montessori – Child centered, using play as a teacher
- Reggio Emilia – Project based curricula, based on the interests of each child
- Socratic Seminar Method – Challenges students to develop their critical thinking and analytic skills.
- A holistic approach – Each child is encouraged to discover their place in the community and the natural world, encouraging the development of humanitarian values such as peace and compassion.
What Makes Us Different
Unlike many schools, Voyagers’ curriculum, while covering all necessary academics, is concerned with establishing a love of learning and critical thinking ability within each child. Students are offered many opportunities throughout the day to explore what interests them. They engage in both physical learning activities (e.g. science experiments) and mental academic pursuits such as learning how to conduct research at the library. Their critical thinking skills are strengthened as they attempt to make sense of the information they’ve gathered, while their pursuit of topics of interest feeds their love of learning.
