When children at The Brick Church School embark on their first school experience at age 3 they most likely venture forth from secure home environments where they are rightly the center of their worlds. From Jean Piaget we know that children this age are cognitively egocentric lacking the mental structures to see things from another’s point of view. The most important and most challenging task for the early childhood educator is to help the child to learn to function as a member of a group to begin to understand the rights and needs of others. As a Church school this is particularly important at Brick.
This goal of social development is inextricably intertwined with the child’s emotional development. Meaningful interaction with others depends upon a secure sense of self. We therefore strive to enhance the children’s self-confidence through appreciation of their efforts in all areas and through a concerted effort to develop their independence so that they feel control over themselves and their environment. Home is not geared entirely towards children because it must also meet the needs of the adults who live there. We learned from Maria Montessori that a carefully ordered classroom environment allows the children to function independently.
