Opportunity School supports the philosophy that children learn through active engagement with materials, other children and adults in their environment. This engagement is structured around play. Play is an essential part of development through which children can build a positive self-image, problem-solve, acquire small and gross motor skills and expand their understanding of the world. Developmentally appropriate activities such as block building, language experiences, dramatic play and art provide experiences that support all areas of development; physical, social, emotional and cognitive.
Opportunity School believes that all children are unique with special needs and abilities. We accept these children as they are and help them to grow and develop. We believe that a child's self esteem is very important to how they learn and to their future school success. We offer opportunities to gain self worth, competence and confidence.
