Quality Time Learning Center is motivated by the proven concept that young children learn by doing. Our program goals are supported by the work of child development theorists and researchers: Piaget (1950-1972), Montessori (1964), Erickson (1950), Elkin (1968) and Kamil (1985). Their work has demonstrated that learning is a complex process that results from the interaction of children’s own thinking and their experience in the external world. Maturation is an important contributor to learning because it provides a framework from which children’s learning proceeds. As children get older, they acquire new skills and experiences that facilitate the learning process. For example, as children grow physically, they are more able to manipulate and control their own environment.
Knowledge is not something that is given to children as though they were empty vessels to be filled. Children acquire knowledge about the physical and social worlds in which they live through PLAYFUL INTERACTION with objects and people. Children do not need to be forced to learn; they are motivated by their own desire to make sense of their world. At Quality Time Learning Center, our students discover that Learning is Fun! The subsequent success of our students demonstrates that this philosophy helps them excel in their future studies.
