SEEDS is committed to developing a holistic educational program that encourages children to learn to love learning. Seeds believes that learning is a lifelong commitment and should be fun, educational, holistic and a rewarding experience. SEEDS stands firm that education and learning should be based on curiosity. When learning is based on curiosity the child retains 50% more of the information learned than they typically would. This is specifically because they are self selecting to learn this information. It is our duty as educators to support this and encourage this need and interest in learning.
S.E.E.D.S. vision is to create a system that supports education. At S.E.E.D.S. we believe that every child should have a the opportunity and tools for their future success. To do this we provide parents and teachers, the real educators of our youth, with the tools to help empower children and themselves to be life long learners. With the right tools every child can thrive.
Each of our Four Guiding Principles works toward an education system that not only gives children the tools to become critical thinkers, also playful and curious learners. It is this type of learner that is innovative and passionate, and therefore equipped with the right attitude and tools to make a difference in the world.
Nurturing a child's curiosity is essential when you want to give children the tools to be lifelong learners. This entails responding to children's needs and interests even if that means stepping outside your own comfort zone. When we talk about nurturing children we mean giving them the care and attention they need for growing or developing.
At S.E.E.D.S. we live this principle by helping parents and teachers make children feel safe. In order to nurture a child's growth and development we, as adults need to make sure we are creating an environment that makes learning possible, safe and open to children's interests, curiosity and play.
To foster a child's curiosity and playfulness is the best gift anyone can give a child. By fostering their curiosity and interests you as an educator are showing your child that they matter. What they like matters. Who they are matters.
As educators of the young we lead by example. The whole saying of "Do as I say, Not as I do" does not work with children. Children lean through example, observation and imitation. When we protect them and protect their right to learn what matters to them, we are teaching them a love for learning and respect for everyone.
Enriching a child's curiosity is all about engaging a child's interests. When we enrich a child's learning we show them that what they are interested in is valuable. More importantly it gives educators the opportunity to engage children in critical thinking thereby further expanding their curiosity to other topics of information. What can be better than enriching a child's life?
