As a school operating in the Midwest of the United States, one of our greatest challenges is imparting the sense of importance that we attribute to early childhood education.
In our estimations, it truly is one of the most valuable times and opportunities that we have in our life to learn and explore the world around us. Unabatedly, we feel that it can help establish a life long passion for learning.
While we take our profession very seriously, we also want to share the idea that learning is, more than anything, fun. We would argue that no one is happier at school than when they are learning, and coming to understand the ways in which things work. As many of you know, we have a phrase that we carry in our back pockets at Baan Dek: social success leads to academic success. If the child is happy, they'll want to learn.
