Every Child is a Genius Preparatory Academy uses K4 Knowing in the fourth dimension pedagogy. The ingenious infusion of kinetics, kinesiology, kinesthetic learning, and knowledge into a STEAM framework of instruction. Teachers will formulate daily lessons immersed in philosophical foundations from  Ellis Paul Torrance creativity concepts, Carol Dweck’s growth mindset, Howard Gardner’s multiple intelligences, Linda Silverman’s visual-spatial intelligence theory, Eric Jensen’s brain-based learning and a non-deficit approach  transforming ideology from “at risk to at-promise” from “hard to reach to how to reach.”

This unique process of learning shifts the intellectual focus to driving children’s learning and development not just measuring mastery of basic skills. Learning is about mastery of self. The ECIAG K4 curriculum is designed to work alongside national curriculum while simultaneously offering structure to suit individual needs.
