What’s Happening Right Now…
Venessa’s Primary: There is a quiet “hum” in the air. A PI student is working on the square chain of 5.  Another student works on soap grinding and makes a huge bowl of bubbles.  Two PIII students write out four digit numbers on a piece of paper like 3,214 and go to the bank and find the corresponding golden beads, they also find the same numeral using the stamp game.  Another PIII student is carrying a sculpture made of soap.

Elementary and Middle School: A student gravitates toward the cultural shelf. Parts of the river are laid out on a floor mat.  They are excited about the go-trip to the James River for an eco-tour with one of the class parents.  Another student investigates where the river flows from. It flows to the east into the Atlantic Ocean.  In another part of the room, a group of students test the incubator. After researching the gestation period for a chicken egg, they prudently make plans to introduce the fertilized egg in September.  

Amanda’s Primary: Two friends are busy assembling numbers with the bank game.  They sit at their rug and read the number, then walk across the room to fetch the corresponding material.  They stack up thousand cubes to make a tower almost as tall as they are.  Between making numbers they practice yoga poses.  Another student explains a drawing of a fire truck to some friends, calling special attention to the lettering on the truck.  The other side of the room is silent as each student is completely focused on their classification work.  The fire truck artist makes it around the room showing the picture to everyone.

Infant:  An infant practices feeding herself at the weaning table.  She is fixing her attention on holding her bottle in the right place and keeping it in her mouth.  She's very hungry and this bottle is proving to be a lot to coordinate.  She continues practicing and manages to drink everything!  When she's finished, she begins to push the bottle away and reaches to the open space on the floor.  A set of hands gently helps her navigate her body down to the floor, and she happily finds a seated position to play peek-a-boo under the table with her guide.  She starts making sounds using her voice and mouth, and the guide responds with similar sounds - practicing the art of conversation!

Toddler: On the playground, a friend accidentally falls off the balance beam, and exclaims, "I fell down!"  A friend nearby says, "Oh, no!" and, "I'll help you!"  He moves quickly over to his fallen friend and offers a hand.  His friend gladly accepts the help, and both work to help each other to stand up.  Once both are standing, they brush off the mulch, and proudly resume their ongoing races around the playground.

It is the duty of the Government to provide free-education to every boy and every girl up to the primary stage. Primary Education will enable a child to learn to read and write. It will enable him to follow a story in his own vernacular language. The student will learn the simple rules of arithmetic. These he must learn, with or without the help of books. Every child should get quality education. The future of our country depends upon the children of today. We must remember that the little child depends more on his teacher than the advanced student does on his professor. A teacher plays an important role in shaping the future of a student.

We have several developmental and psychological milestones in our lives. A child's growth and development depends on the formation of his or her foundation at home. The love, care and attention being given by their parents has a great impact on them. It is just secondary for them to learn these things at school. Because at school, children learn majority the objective outlook in life such as logic, mathematics and many more.
