Our Philosophy is Simple

The philosophy of Bear Creek United Church School incorporates Piagetian principles. The curriculum is thoughtfully selected, skillfully presented, and carefully matched to the child’s level. Content is presented in different ways according to each child’s stage of development. A discovery approach to learning is offered and provides opportunities for observation and hands-on experiences. A child learns by doing, by exploring the environment, by using all the senses. Realizing that each child has a unique learning style, the educational goal is to help him/her develop at an optimal rate while nurturing a positive self-concept.
