Our philosophical approach at the Children's Studio is eclectic. A hands-on project-based approach to learning and discovery is most frequently used to accomplish our goals. This methodology promotes a positive balance between teacher-planned activities that are tied to the curriculum and, simultaneously, for unexpected student-generated interests that emerge to be fully developed and explored. It is not our intention to foster a predetermined learning style for a child but rather to discover, along with the child, the type of learning style, or combination of styles, that is natural and organic to that particular child, be it visual, auditory, or kinesthetic. Research has shown that whatever particular sensory experiences best promote learning for a child, the majority of young learners do best and are happiest when involved in an active hands-on process-approach learning program.
