The Learning Child Series



The Learning Child Series is about nurturing the whole child, attending to cognitive development in the context of a child’s social and emotional growth, recognizing that each child is unique, and every child’s needs are different. Our programs promote such “habits of mind” as personal curiosity, problem solving abilities, “as-if” thinking and acceptance of different points of view.
