What is Teaching?
We believe that teaching is providing children with guidance, instruction, dedication, motivation, inclusion, respect, attention, love, age and developmentally appropriate materials and curriculum, time, space, and a safe area to explore, while making sure that the children remain safe and healthy.
Teaching Techniques

We believe family involvement to be a crucial part of a child 's learning and development. A family 's involvement in a child 's education can provide important information about a child 's needs, interests, likes, dislikes, limitations, and abilities, that can only be seen at home by the child 's family members. Families can also continue teaching a child at home, after school, giving the child valuable experiences. Also, when the family is involved in their child’s education, it can boost the child 's self-confidence, self-identity, and motivation for learning.

    NaaBorle Sackeyfio My Philosophy Teachers are here to facilitate learning by creating a safe and healthy, nonjudgmental, enriching classroom that encourages positive cognitive, physical and social-emotional development. The basis of my philosophy is derived from Piaget’s constructivism, Waldorf education, emotional responsive approach and best practices in child care. Children learn best in environments that are designed for exploration, creativity, openness and self-expression. The balance in child development stems from the parents/teacher/ child relationship. A positive relationship is the building block for self-development as the child get older.…

    They consist of creating a caring community of learners, teaching to enhance development and learning, planning curriculum to achieve important goals, assessing children’s development and learning, and establishing reciprocal relationships with families (NAEYC, 2009).

This allows the teacher to recognize the student needs, interests, and abilities in addition to the family goals, values, expectations, and discipline (NAEYC, 2009).

    If we offer assistance to children to extend their thinking with guidance from an ECE, then we can encourage them to draw conclusions that are correct. This is important to ensure that we provide a stimulating environment to children, and pay attention to their interests and questions so that they understand these new concepts in a way that they can contextualize. By understanding each child’s zone of proximal development and how to apply scaffolding, educators can assess when to step in and offer guidance and when to let a child make their own discoveries. The implementation of this strategy early on can enable both early childhood educators and parents to help the child reach their potential, in regard to psychological…
