Our Beliefs

The Orchard Farm School District is committed to establishing and promoting a high quality, nurturing learning environment that supports the core beliefs and practices set forth by The Missouri Early Learning Standards.

  • We believe that each domain of a child’s development is interrelated and that meaningful connections across all areas is necessary to support the whole child.
  • We believe that children develop in a relatively orderly sequence and that later developing skills must build upon previously acquired knowledge.
  • We believe that children use a variety of media, such as painting, drawing, dramatic play, construction, and language to communicate their experiences and/or represent their understanding of concepts.
  • We believe that children are active learners and construct their own ideas and understandings from their everyday experiences.
  • We believe that play is a crucial component of early development and serves to enhance a child’s understanding of the world around them.
  • We believe that children learn best in the context of a community in which they feel safe and valued as an individual.
