We use the theory of Multiple Intelligences as a curriculum framework. The theory of Multiple Intelligences, pioneered by leading developmental psychologist and Harvard Professor Howard Gardner proposes that there in not one thing called intelligence, but rather several different types of intelligence that work together (or, sometimes, play together) since each person’s overall intellectual development and structure is unique. Using this theory, we have designed our approach to teaching and our curriculum to "build" these intelligences innate in your children.
Every child has aptitude in all the 8 Multiple Intelligences but the degree of competence in each area varies. Gardner’s theory encourages to ask "How is my child smart?" rather than "How smart is my child?" We identify the MIs in which a child shows particular talents and provide opportunities to excel in them. At the same time, we advocate patient nurturing of the MIs at which the child may need more time and practice.
