Holistic Approach to Development
Tot Spot Academy strives to follow a holistic approach to education and create happy, healthy lifelong learners. We will nurture their emotional well being, foster their psychological awareness and strengthen their physical skills. We view all of these areas of child development as being interconnected and strive to integrate a variety of skills and concepts into each unit and lesson. Our goal is to enrich the whole child in an environment where teachers prepare and preplan activities only as far as to initiate open ended inquiry. From there children engage in a variety of authentic learning tasks that are stimulating, of personal interest and often have a variety of “correct” answers with no predetermined outcomes. Much of this learning comes from opportunities to play. Play that isn’t scripted. Play that isn’t adult directed. Play that isn’t cut short due to time restraints; good old fashion play. At Tot Spot Academy, play is at the forefront of holistic development.
