Whole Child Learning

At Ramalynn, we emphasize Whole Child Learning. Through teaching the whole child, we focus not only on academic achievements, but on the personal and developmental needs of our students.

"What is the whole-child approach? The whole-child approach to teaching supports and nurtures all areas of children's development and learning, from social-emotional and cognitive skills to literacy, math, and science understanding. It is a powerful strategy as preschool children transition to kindergarten."

     -Teaching Strategies, Whole Child

What makes someone a good person? What gives them the life skills they need to be a leader? Whole child development “empowers children as creative and engaged citizens who can strengthen the wellbeing of a whole society.”
