Here at Watermelon Seeds we encourage students to learn about their world and its many wonders. Using a hands-on approach, we seek to develop creative self-discovery through fostering a child's natural curiosity and love of literature, science, art, music and culture.
We strive to provide your child with a happy, fun-filled learning experience and to help them become peaceful citizens. With our overlying theme of World of Wonder we hope to inspire and excite each child to appreciate all the wonders of their world and their part in the larger world.
Each month, we will take your child on a journey of enlightenment with themes such as The Wonders of You; The Wonders of Art & Music; The Wonders of the Earth; The Wonders of Light; The Wonders of Transportation; The Wonders of the Rainforest; The Wonders of the Farm; The Wonders of Water and The Wonders of Your Back Yard. Each unit, as a group, we will open the "Door of Discovery" into our unique large tented environment where the children will first be introduced to the monthly theme.
In our effort to serve, Watermelon Seeds believes in nurturing the needs of our children and our community. We value families and recognize the importance their individuality.
We believe that:
- Children learn about themselves and the world around them through play, the arts and conversation with their peers and adults
- With new experiences introduced to the child, they will respond with curiosity and energy, which will result in mastering new skills and learning.
- The relationship between teacher and child is for the teacher to attentively listen, respond and offer support and guidance to the child according to their level of development.
- Activities being made available for the child they will then explore, create and communicate their interests.
We recognize the uniqueness of each child and that their learning processes develop differently.
