5 Levels of Development

With these goals in mind, each child is guided in development at FIVE LEVELS:

  • Physical: potential learning problems can first be spotted in a young child’s ability to control movements.

  • Emotional: young children need patience and guidance to learn to control and express their feelings.

  • Intellectual: young children are collectors of knowledge (they absorb it from their environment).

  • Mental: to know, to experience, to use all known information for experiments and problem-solving.

  • Spiritual: develops strength of character, revelation of true personality, and desire to be of service to others.
