You can't guide children to where they need to go if you don't first meet them where they are.
Children develop at different rates and in ways that are unique to them. Just as children don’t all walk, talk, or lose their teeth at exactly the same time, we recognize that learning won’t always occur on the same day or in a predetermined manner. By meeting each of our students where they are at and allowing them to learn and develop at their own rate, we minimize the risk of gaps in learning. Rather than a one-size-fits-all approach, our teachers create learning experiences for the students based on learning style preferences, multiple intelligence strengths, developmental levels, interests and passions.
All of these factors need to be taken into consideration when designing a learning program. No boxed curriculum will ever be able to meet the unique cognitive, social-emotional, physical and creative developments of a child. The boxed curricula and siloed subjects that most schools utilize are simply too narrow in scope to address the needs of unique individuals. The Anastasis inquiry-based approach creates connections across disciplines, revealing the interconnected nature of learning and life.
