Studies show that the brain develops at its highest rate during the ages of 0-3 and the nervous system is organizing itself for all later learning. The optimal environment for that learning and development is one that is quiet and calm. Working in partnership with parents we maintain that calm environment. The triangle of teacher, parent, and child working in cooperation.
Suzuki Early Childhood Education (SECE) is a program in which a mixed age group of children meet weekly, building on concepts and skills laid out in the SECE repertoire while interacting with one another, their parents, and the teachers. The parent plays a central role in all activities in the belief that the parent is the child’s first and most important teacher. Through parent participation in prenatal, baby, and preschool classes, parents become partners in providing an enriched natural environment for the growth of their children.
Suzuki ECE seeks to build on the child’s natural delight in learning and lays the foundation for life-long learning that meets Dr. Suzuki’s goals for all children—to create an environment for children, free from pressure, in which they can gain skills, a sense of purpose in life, an understanding of discipline, and an appreciation of beauty.
SECE is built on 7 key concepts:
Kirsten Browning, lead teacher
Marla Majett, assistant teacher
