Child-centered means our program is here to meet the real needs of children, allow them the freedom to be children, and put their physical, emotional, and intellectual well-being first.
... We see inappropriate or destructive behavior as a problem to be solved, primarily by the children with the help of a teacher. Problem solving is how we teach children to form positive relationships, resolve conflicts, learn self-discipline, and show respect for others.
