Philosophy and Mission Statement
We believe that children are curious and eager to learn. They have an inherent desire to make sense of themselves and the world. They are active participants in their environment. Children communicate their needs and wants, verbally and non-verbally and think, experience, explore, ask and search for answers within activities of their own free choice. Children learn best when engaged in an activity of their choice, and while they are accompanied by nurturing teachers and care-givers, whom with they have formed close relationships.
Therefore, our goal is to provide each child with a warm and enriching environment that encourages the development of social skills, independence, and a positive self-image. We do this by providing an inclusive stimulating environment of teaching and learning activities. Teacher’s care and respect children by encouraging them to think for themselves, make decisions, and work towards their own solutions by problem solving and expressing their ideas and feelings. We also embrace the belief that parents are the first and most important educators and are therefore valuable partners in childcare and education. We share the common goal of fostering children’s development and well-being. Ba Futuru Pre-School supports every teachers’ growth as a professional. We encourage our teachers to participate in external training and place a special emphasis on our in-house trainings and ongoing mentoring.
