The creativity and the originality of every child will be maximised at a Steve JobsSchool, by paying much attention to social and emotional development, manual dexterity and creative forms of sharing knowledge. For instance in the form of workshops, held by the children themselves, projects with a social goal, or theatre, we encourage originality and creativity. Through the large diversity and the varying composition of the project groups, your child learns, in a playful way, important life lessons; how to be socially more flexible and how to retrieve the best out of every challenge.
No child is an exception
No two children are the same. One may learn easily and is ahead, the other may have to bring all hands on deck to stay abreast. One can concentrate easily; the other one is easily distracted. That’s why Steve JobsSchools offer individual education to every child, at their own pace. Using learning methods that the child likes. And sometimes in very unorthodox ways. Like the little boy that did not understand mathematics at all, but just loved to tinker with anything engine-related. Every Saturday he was allowed to help out at a garage of one of his parents and it turned out that he had no trouble whatsoever with crunching numbers that were related to his passion. He is now very good at math.
Every talent is recognized
Through the rich and varied learning environment at the Steve JobsSchools, your child will be exposed to a large diversity of subjects. This helps them to discover their own talents. A Steve JobsSchool subsequently offers a fertile ground to develop that talent. For example by helping your child to give a workshop about his/her passion, or to meet professionals who have made that their life’s destiny. But perhaps your child has a cognitive talent. Maybe he/she is good at math. In that case a Steve JobsSchool will not impede this child and will stimulate him/her to continue to learn at his/her own speed.
To think critically and to think problem-solving
By stimulating your child to collect information themselves and filter it for relevancy, he/she will learn how to think critically. During the projects, the child will come into situations where a great idea is not always a practical idea. Or the other children do not like that idea. This teaches your child to think practically and to think and act in a problem-solving manner.
