We believe that children absorb and understand knowledge through their own unique combination of experiences and representations - their Multiple Intelligences. At The Nicholson School we respect children's Multiple Intelligences by creating a play-based, age-appropriate, intentional environment for teacher-led, small group and self-directed exploration across a wide range of concepts - literacy, science, art, numbers, and music. The classroom environment is dynamic and evolves over the year with the children and their interests.
The Nicholson School believes that our children share this earth with people from many cultures. The school environment affords children the opportunity to learn about different peoples together.
Lastly, The Nicholson School believes in the competence of children - our teachers support each child's individual learning style and path of inquiry. Children are encouraged to reason, ask why, experiment and make decisions.
