Vision, Mission and Philosophy
The mission is to offer broad, holistic early childhood education on secular and non-denominational basis that demonstrates internationally recognized standards of excellence.
The vision for the AKELC is to provide a strong foundation for children’s continuing educational growth and lifelong learning.
Early childhood principles that support the AKELC vision and mission include:
- Active Learning
Children learn best when they have opportunities to explore the world around them.
- Problem Solving
Children develop this life skill in their early years when they are actively involved in play that is supported by adults.
Children benefit from opportunities in their environment that encourage decision-making and choices.
Children need opportunities to talk about their experiences and build trusting relationships with the adults in their life.
A multilingual approach to language development supports future academic success.
