CASITA AZUL PHILOSOPHY
Casita Azul believes children are protagonists in their own learning. We value and nurture the whole child in all their capacities. We will foster an environment where children are able to express and communicate through their own language of learning. We believe that children experience the greatest growth and learn the Spanish Language in a context of a relationship with their teachers. We first build relationships where children feel loved and secure. We strive to provide a warm, caring, comfortable and safe environment for our children. Together, we will establish routines that are predictable and consistent. All children will be treated with gentleness, honesty and respect. We will encourage them to treat others in this manner. Our classrooms cultivate an unbiased atmosphere see society through a lens that celebrates diversity of thought and culture. We believe teachers and educators are important role models. Therefore, we use modeling as a vital tool in our classrooms. To maintain an atmosphere where children feel comfortable and confident, we use constructive guidance and positive reinforcement as tools for discipline.
