Global Children's Center Philosophy:
Global Children's Center was founded on Howard Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences. Howard Gardner's theory states that all students come to the classroom with different skill levels and sets of developed intelligences. Therefore, each child will have his own unique set of strengths and weaknesses or unique learning style. When students are properly assessed, teachers must get an accurate overview of their strengths and weaknesses, which will allow teachers to better present the information being taught. Howard Gardner's theory claims that a better approach to assessment is to allow students to explain the material in their own ways using the different intelligences. Based on his theory we believe that each child is unique and our teachers will take each child's strength and weakness and guide them in a positive manner.
The seven intelligences Gardner proposes are:
The Personal Intelligences, which includes Interpersonal and Intrapersonal Intelligence.
To cater to each one of these intelligences we design our centers to be divided into different zones. Our zones include building zone, imagination zone, reading zone, art zone, game zone, music zone, and sports zone. Each zone includes a variety of materials where students can explore and learn through play.
Our teachers facilitate the students' learning by leading clubs that fit each one of these multiple intelligences. At Global Children's Center we offer clubs including: reading club, leadership club, academic club, sports clubs, art club, game club, homework club, music club, and cooking club. Each club participates in a different activity each week. Our students are allowed to have the choice as to which club(s) they would like to participate in on a weekly basis. We encourage our students to become leaders by designing their own clubs or coming up with activities that can be done in the already existing clubs.
