How do children develop both self-esteem and respect for others?
The children are encouraged to value and support each other, in class and at play. Discipline is accomplished with firmness, but with understanding. Children are taught to solve their own social problems, with the assistance and supervision of the staff.
A reasonable class size allows teachers to take children and their ideas seriously. This promotes self-esteem, eagerness to share ideas, and co-operation in the learning process. Children are encouraged to think independently, as well as to work together to solve problems.
