iSMILE RECIPE FOR EVERY ASPECT OF LIFE

To make a rich pedagogic soup

Ingredients:

a Montessori program
a right-brain approach
the Vygotsky Key to Learning
the UK curriculum
a physical program
the Kindermusik program

Add the ingredients to love of children and team spirit

Mix together and cook with intense enthusiasm.

Serve with lashings of good intentions, high hopes and hard work

Is anything missing?

This is certainly a rich mix, but is it everything? To make the mixture gel, totransform it (and its pupis and teachers)into something else, surely requires the presence of a pevasive moral imperative to effect change and the firm assurance that this can be achieved (in the form of the 'intelligent love').

There are similar recipes cooked up in the name of Conductive Education.
