Children are natural problem solvers, capable of coming up with imaginative solutions that might not occur to adults.
At TLC we encourage these skills by :
· Providing children with hands -on tasks with real -life applications to help develop realistic problem—solving strategies.
· Fostering collaboration between students in the solving of a problem ( students can often help a peer find a solution more easily than a teacher can)
· Encouraging students to work through conflicts with one another, rather than turning to the teacher to be a referee.
Our school age students wanted to learn about restaurants. This was their project.They were amazing!
They created menus, shopping lists, looked up recipes and turned their classroom into a charming café.
They were open for business!! The orders started coming in and to their surprise they have received rave reviews.
This one was from a delighted Father.
“I stopped in this afternoon at the urging of my daughter and had a Calzone. From my first meeting with the Maitre-D and placing my order with the server, my experience was simply fantastic. Let me say I’ve had more than a few but this Calzone was the best! Cooked perfectly, served piping hot by a knowledgeable and attentive staff, even
The Sous Chef came out to see how I was doing. They even offered me A taste of their lemonade. Over all my experience was top-notch!! I don’t think I have ever seen my staff as excited to get an order as those kids were, thanks and my thanks to the kids for a great job.” Sean Cunneen
