Honor children’s unique strengths, needs, and interests through intentional instruction.

No two children are the same, so why should their instruction be? Intentional instruction recognizes and addresses children’s individuality and unlocks new opportunities to help every child learn, grow, and thrive.

But intentional instruction doesn’t happen by chance.
Intentionality is a result of reflection, preparation, and flexibility. It is built upon a foundation of trusting relationships, established goals, and information about children’s development in general and each child as an individual. Moreover, it requires motivation, inspiration, and tools.
