Woodlawn Early Years School – Mission
Woodlawn School is an environment where education and culture empowers our students to grow into caring, connected and contributing global citizens.
- We believe that a school culture which builds strong RELATIONSHIPS with students and their families creates the conditions to improve student learning outcomes. We welcome, nurture and encourage positive communication and relationships.
- We believe in INCLUSION; meaning everyone is welcome, valued and safe. Every student is involved in every way possible.
- We believe we are teaching the CHILD FIRST and the curriculum second. We work on developing a “can do” attitude, self-esteem and belief in oneself as a learner.
- We believe that a strong emphasis on developing LITERACY skills sets the foundation for learning and success across all other environments.
- We believe that all forms of PLAY (educational, physical, creative, and free) must be included in the learning environment to engage the brain and foster critical thinking skills.
