Working with Students

LIHA has a unique approach to individualizing the curriculum to each child's developmental needs in a social setting. Because we appreciate the varied learning styles and ways in which children grow and develop in different areas, the day is scheduled to allow for the greatest flexibility in the ways children are grouped for learning.

Students at LIHA are encouraged to become self-motivated learners. Students learn to experience the joy of mastering a concept and with that comes along figuring out how to solve a problem on one's own, practicing and learning a skill, or creating work over a period of time. Teachers continually set goals with students and evaluate and assess their progress while also engaging the children in reflective conversations about their work.
