At Shonan International School, all of our programs are based on the belief that children are active participants in their learning. We believe in a child-centered approach to learning that encourages children to take learning into their own hands as opposed to being directed or prompted by teachers. Through collaboration, shared experiences, and in-depth exploration of unique themes, children can develop a rich understanding about the world.
We adopt the whole-child approach and holistically work on developing their SPICE (social, physical, intellectual, creative, emotional)
At Shonan International School, parents and teachers work together in the process of maintaining a healthy sociaql and emotional environment. Therfore, it is crucial for parents to implement positive parenting strategies while teachers utilize similar behavioral strategies at school.
Under the guidance of our Social and Emotional Coordinator, teachers and parents take part in effective workshops to understand effective strategies that adhere to the child’s current emotional and social development.
We believe that for a child to maintain a healthy personality, the child will need to master specific tasks according to his/her developmental stages.
SIS provides compulsory workshops for parents and teachers. These workshops are to learn about the social and emotional development of each child. During these workshops, we discuss how we, as adults can implement the same strategies to help support the children’s social and emotional well-being.See more
