WonderHere Agreements
It is vital that all potential families participating in WonderHere programs understand and align with the complete vision of our educational process. Please take a moment to review these essential elements of the WonderHere educational philosophy and experience. Upon reading each statement, please select "yes" if you agree and "no" if you disagree.
I understand that by participating in any WonderHere program, I am committed to be an active participant in my child's education, and I am responsible to volunteer in my child's classroom regularly. Full-time families are required to volunteer in the classroom/studio 2 hours a month. Part-time families are required to volunteer in the classroom/studio for 1 hour a month.
I understand that it is vital for the growth of my child that I, the parent, have a healthy awareness of my child's strengths and weaknesses. When conflict arises, I am committed to be a problem-solver and actively working to find solutions that meet the expectation of the WonderHere staff.
I understand that WonderHere is a collaborative community of parents, teachers, and students. I am committed to be a positive contributor to this learning community and encouraging my child to be an empathetic, active participator in their classroom with their peers.
I understand that WonderHere curriculum is not paced to "keep up" with Florida State Standards or to prepare students for state standardized assessments. WonderHere has adopted the Finnish Standards for the development of curriculum and the monitoring of student progress. Due to Finland's high level of innovation as a country educationally and their consistently high performance on the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA - an important tool for measuring education systems worldwide) WonderHere has established that these standards most closely identify with the vision and ideologies of each WonderHere program's design.
I understand that WonderHere curriculum is designed to cultivate a love of learning within the child and to develop holistically the following within every child we serve: curiosity, empathy, collaboration, problem solving, leadership, and creativity. WonderHere values deep learning that takes time, includes challenge, promotes self-reflection, and is individually student paced. It is contrary to the vision and purpose of a WonderHere education to focus on standardized benchmarks that promote rote memory and teach skills in isolation that lack real-world application.
