Whole Child Learning
“Teaching the whole child” has become a popular buzz term in education today. But what does that really mean? At NCCS, it means exposing students to topics such as current events, history, and geography which help them become better citizens of the world. It also means instruction in the arts, as well as a solid foundation in mathematics, science, and literature. Whole child learning includes making sure they get plenty of outdoor time, exercise, and fresh air. When we attend to children’s emotional health, we make sure they are challenged but not overwhelmed, developing strong character, and are engaged in their learning. Most importantly, whole-child learning ensures that each student feels connected, loved, and respected.
