MCEP philosophy is believing the best learning takes place –
In a warm supportive atmosphere, where each child is respected as an individual and where peer competition or fear of failure is not encouraged as motivators.
Taking into account the uniqueness of the child’s needs, interests, abilities, learning rates, and styles.
When the child is active, manipulating objects and experimenting.
When the child is allowed to think independently and make choices.
When there is a diversity of personalities involved where the child has the opportunity to learn from peers and other children as well as from a variety of adults, including teachers, parents and community resource persons.
When there is no sharp distinction between school and home. Learning takes place in many different settings.
Through experiences that lead to the enrichment of the human imagination, spirit, and mind.
