“Learning how letters correspond with sounds, or phonics, allows children to make the connection between unfamiliar words in print and spoken language. Once children have mastered phonics, they are able to decipher the words they encounter while reading and spell the words they wish to write. Building efficient decoding skills, as well as automatic sight-word recognition and a strong vocabulary, leads to two essential goals in literacy: reading fluency and comprehension." —Dr. Robin Story
Joyfully growing hearts and minds … If you provide children with a broad education in the arts, literacy, math, science and the history of their community, all while allowing them to move and play freely, they will thrive. If you honor and stoke children’s natural curiosity—the engine of achievement—they will flourish. If you encourage children to be creative, to express themselves in song, on paper, at an easel, they will love the place called school.
For a half-century, The Children’s School has been doing these things and much more in the name of growing young hearts and minds. The work we do ensures that our students not only thrive and flourish but also begin to develop a lifelong love of learning. All because of a place called school. Not just any school. The Children’s School.
