The Keiki Education
In the field of early childhood education, there is perhaps no greater area of a concern than accountability, both to the parents and to the children. Each child is special to us, a unique entity to be treated with dignity and affection. We personalize our care by concentrating on the individual child's interests through careful observation and communication. Keiki "Intercultural" Preschool provides a setting for the children from different backgrounds to share their culture, tradition, religion, and at certain times their language.
It is our belief that children should be valued as unique individuals. Children need to develop a sense of responsibility for their own learning process. What matters most is that process of experimentation, and we encourage our students to be risk-takers, and not to be afraid of making mistakes. This process should be meaningful and fun. Another important thing to remember is that parents are the primary educators of their own children and have a vital role to play in the establishment of their child's learning environment.
We believe in understanding each child's inner constitution; which aspects of their character require strengthening, which traits should be discouraged, and what areas of personality should be nurtured and emphasized. We provide guided opportunities so they can feel, touch, taste, and explore with their senses as many experiences as possible, freeing them to grow and develop in a natural and positive manner. Most importantly we do not believe in imposing our own beliefs upon them but allowing them to blossom in their own special way.
