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.
  • Independence
    Children benefit from opportunities in their environment that encourage decision-making and choices.
  • Communication
    Children need opportunities to talk about their experiences and build trusting relationships with the adults in their life.
  • Multilingualism
    A multilingual approach to language development supports future academic success.
