Where Listening with full attention takes place
The Philosophy of Casa de Aprendizaje
We believe that parents are great! They love their children so much, and we appreciate the vital and important work they do to raise their children. To support parents well, I believe it is important to listen to parents, and let them have a place to share what they are thinking and feeling. This “talking and listening” space helps parents think more clearly about their goals for themselves and their families. Parents who are part of a caring community can raise their children with more support. We want to build this community for families at our family home.
In our work with the children, we also focus on listening. All day long, we listen to children and create space for them to share their feelings. Part of our job is to provide perspective about feelings and to help give children a safe place to show the range of their emotions, (with our support and input.) When a child has “off track” behavior, we will interrupt them and set limits by using a warm tone of voice and gentle gestures while at the same time allowing the child to express their feelings – often crying. We think it is important to allow children to cry when they need to and we will stay close, at their eye level, until they are ready to move on to another activity.
We provide a variety of activities that support healthy child development and we believe that children grow and learn in their own individual ways. Being in a place with caring people who help children with building relationships and feeling connected to each other, provides the framework for the self-esteem that will help them the rest of their lives.
