The word education comes from the Latin root EDUCARE (e-du-ká-re).
Educare means to bring out that which is within. What is within?
Human Values are latent in every human being; one cannot acquire them from outside. Every child comes with this inheritance. All the child needs is for us to reintroduce these values to him/her. Once these values are brought to the forefront of his/her consciousness, the child gladly embraces them. With very little help from us the child begins to understand how he/she can bring joy and happiness into the lives of all those who come his/her way.
What sets our Center apart from others is that our “Education in Human Values” program is integrated throughout the curriculum. The children are taught the universal values of Love, Truth, Peace, Right Conduct and Non-Violence. Children learn about these values through clear and short definitions, quotations, songs, stories, role-playing, interacting with other people, as well as experiencing them within the Center’s environment.
A curriculum that focuses on developing the child in this manner is a wonderful asset to the family. We believe in a holistic growth of your child. This cannot be achieved without bringing out the natural goodness found in our innocent children. To do this we place great importance on the education of human values.
The practical demonstration of these values by the child along with the acquisition of knowledge and skills is the most precious success story and what education is all about.
