Our Mission

Learning Craft recognizes the power of family in the learning process and strives to provide parents with the understanding and tools to be able to give their children of all ages the mental acuity, habits of mind, and learning skills that they need to succeed.

Fundamental Beliefs of Learning

1. Children Need to Learn

  •  Children have a primal need for learning every day.
  •  Children deserve to see their parents love learning.
  • Children can and will learn if properly motivated.

2. Learning is a Physiological Activity Involving the Whole Body.

  •  Children learn best by doing.
  • Children of all ages learn by moving, singing, dancing, drawing, playing, exploring, discovering, experiencing
  • Children remember a concept when they spend time on it thinking, experimenting, solving and creating.

3. Children Need a Safe Environment and Repetition to Learn

  • Children should be given the tools of learning.
  • Children need timely feedback to improve
  • Children need to understand they won’t get it right the first time. They should be prepared to do it at least three times to obtain mastery.

4. Children Need a Rich Learning Environment

  • Relevant and current information must be at the Parents’ and Children’ fingertips to provide answers when the questions are still fresh.
  • Children need access to books of all types.
  • Children must be proficient in reading, writing, and calculation by the time they are eight. All other learning depends on that.
  • Children should be exposed to all types of learning styles.
  • Technology used appropriately can greatly magnify the Children’s capacity to learn.

Education is the kindling of a flame , not the filling of a vessel.

Ghandi

All men who have turned out worth anything have had the chief hand in their own education.

Sir Walter Scott

Self-education is, I firmly believe, the only kind of education there is.

Isaac Asimov

Tradition and history place teachers as the principal foundation of learning, when in fact, learning can only be done by the student, often in spite of the teacher.
