Wee Guiding Principles, Igniting a passion for learning

CREATE WONDER

We believe ‘why?’ is the most important question you will ever ask.When the question ‘why?’ gets asked we encounter a moment of emotional wonder and immediately our imaginations and curiosity kick into gear – we become engaged in finding answers. So many things are worth wondering about, yet so few people take the time to discover. As learners we naturally ask questions, make observations and get excited when we explore new pathways to deeper understanding. For example, a child’s connection to their family, interest in stories, or curiousity towards a bird feasting at a feeder provide teachable moments that move learners from what they already know into an exploration of the unknown.

EMPOWER CONFIDENCE

When you believe you can do it, most of the obstacles holding you back simply melt away.
Self-reliance is really about believing in your abilities, dreams and potential – and it’s a mindset that’s easily nurtured and developed from an early age. Learner-centered environments allow children and youth to become partners and architects of their own learning. It makes what they learn more engaging, relevant and fun, but perhaps more importantly, it serves as a catalyst for fostering an ‘I can do it attitude’ and a spirit of independence.

LEAD BY EXAMPLE

There’s a leader in all of us.
Whether it’s taking the time to listen, picking up a piece of litter on the ground or lending a helping hand when it’s needed – your actions have a direct impact on the lives of the people around you. True role models in our lives are people who possess the qualities we would like to have. They naturally nurture, support and challenge us to be better.

EXTEND LEARNING

Shared accountability is the essence of all great partnerships.
We view learning as a commitment that requires strong connections between the home, school and community. As instructors, we work together to extend learning from the classroom into their home and community, but cannot help a child achieve the full value and potential for what they learn without the emotional investment of parents.

Wee Philosophy School of opportunities

We care, but we’re not a Day Care.
We use play as a vehicle for learning, but we’re not a Play School.
We believe that anyone can learn at any stage in his or her life. We also believe that infants, children and youth learn best when they’re having fun. Fun isn’t the measure of success, but it serves as a vehicle for increasing learner engagement.
Wee College is committed to achieving age specific learning outcomes based on the Provincial Early Learning and Childcare Framework developed in collaboration with the Department of Education and UNB Fredericton. That’s where we differentiate ourselves from traditional childcare centres.
Your child is having fun because the activities and web-based learning themes are designed to encourage ownership (self-reliance), are connected to what your child already knows (relevance) and stretches the learner to create a deeper level of understanding (new knowledge).
Do you remember when you were a kid and could do anything? We see that potential shine on a daily basis.

Optimal Learning requires core fundamentals

The foundation for learning at Wee College is nurtured by embracing three core fundamentals.

Kids cooking fresh vegetable salad in a white kitchen. Children cook vegetables for vegetarian lunch. Toddler and baby eat healthy dinner. Boy and girl preparing and eating raw meal. Child nutrition.
