CHP’s holistic philosophy focuses on growth for the whole child – meaning their cognitive, physical, and social/emotional well-being are all viewed as equally important in a child’s developmental growth. Methodologies are viewed as tools in a teacher’s toolbox rather than imperatives to be followed at all times. Students and their interests can drive and inform our teaching, but it is the responsibility of the teacher as the expert in the classroom to guide the students toward growth. We believe in a structured and organized classroom environment, so that young children can predict and understand their daily schedule. The directors are there to guide and help teachers so that they have the methods and skills to drive student success.
