Gifted Learners •
Discovery Trails support all types of learners, and we especially know gifted and talented.
We create an atmosphere that not only supports understanding of all types of learners but encourages the seeking of understanding. We introduce themes designed to “start the wheels turning” by presenting information, then experiential, hands-on activities support the lesson by getting children moving, thinking, and doing. During the course of each day, children are offered individual learning time that includes the teacher and the student in a one-on-one setting to work on skills and interests that are specific to each individual child. Children construct a sense of wonder and excitement in learning as they build confidence in themselves as people and lifelong students.
Is your child gifted?
Several studies have found that parents are fairly accurate at identifying when their preschool-aged child is “exceptionally bright” or “gifted.” Some characteristics that may get the attention of parents and cause them to question if their child has an exceptionally high ability to learn include:
