Instilling the Love of Learning in Students
Long before children start to school, parents are given the opportunity to stimulate the love of learning. Children possess a natural curiosity for learning, hungry to know more and understand the ‘why’ and ‘how’ of things. However, it takes time and a concerted effort.
These kids are fortunate to have been given an early introduction to the love of learning, so the challenge of grasping more complex concepts comes easier as they progress. For educators, the ongoing challenge is to light the spark within their students that fuels the flame to a lifelong love of learning.
Within the educational system as it is today, that can be an overwhelming challenge for educators. And the reasons are numerous and varied. Suffice it to say that the educators who are equipped with the skills and understanding to plant the seeds of ‘love of learning’ within their students are not everywhere. However, there are a select group of them at Yorktown Education.
Meet the outstanding team of achievers who know how to instill within each Yorktown student a lifelong love of learning. In fact, they do it every day. We invite you to schedule a tour of our school, meet our inspired educators, ask questions, and learn for yourself one of the singular ways Yorktown Education stands high above others.
Another unique Yorktown feature is rooted in the student-centric culture, offering students immediate access to self-discovery and new ideas. When children experience the thrill of learning more about doing what they love, it fuels their passion and curiosity to want to know even more.
Yorktown Education also provides multiple unique opportunities for students to learn about unusual career routes by inviting speakers from all over the world to Skype in or come in person to talk with our students. By exposing students to these multiple talent areas, our students have more opportunities to develop unique talents.
Yorktown students thrive intellectually as they discover how much fun learning can be. Eliminating the stress of competing or progressing at the same pace as their classmates gives Yorktown students the added advantage of ‘enjoyment’ as they learn.
With our unique cohort system that does not use age-based grade levels, students are evaluated individually and have the opportunity to develop their interests to their maximum potential. A 5-year old may show the ability to master complex math in a way a 10-year old does not. The learning curve is very different and the curriculum is adjusted accordingly.
That’s a distinctive Yorktown difference; one of many.
