"Our Programs Have Structure But Do Not Structure Children"
"The Strength of our Program is the Dedication of Our Teachers"
"Cambridge Teachers, Parents, and Students Are Partners in the Educational Process"
Why Cambridge Cambridge Schools have a child-centered philosophy at Cambridge:
We believe that a school for children should structure its programs, not the children in them. We design our programs to foster self-esteem, socialization skills and interactive language abilities.
We believe it is most important to treat children with respect, and we strive everyday to look at life through the eyes of a child and gear our wide range of programs to their specific needs.
We believe the strength of our program is the dedication of our teaching staff. We support our teachers with training resources and the freedom to create unique learning experiences for children.
We believe child development is a lateral process in which physical, emotional and social growth are as important as intellectual development. Children at Cambridge experience learning through concrete, hands-on activities.
We believe in setting appropriate limits, not imposing adult discipline. We establish consistent, age appropriate limits to help children function in the world around them.
We believe we have a responsibility to the family as well as to the child. Exceptional educational programs for children require a well developed three way partnership between parent, teacher and child.
