Reframing the Mission-Vision of LALC

We know that it is our responsibility to make sure that our pupils are well-equipped to deal with the challenges that they will face.

When we analyzed the curriculum we felt that there were some things lacking.

First of all, we wondered if it was enough for us to teach our pupils – your children – the three Rs of traditional education: Reading, wRiting, and aRithmetic.

The needs and requirements in the new economy that is emerging during the second decade of the 21st century requires us to make some adjustments in the nature and purpose of our pupil’s education. We know that it is our responsibility to make sure that our pupils, who will be responsible and involved citizens of tomorrow, are well-equipped to deal with the challenges that they will face. We feel that merely focusing on Reading, wRiting and aRithmetic (while fundamental in learning) in our curriculum, does not really provide anything special and unique in the Little Archers Learning Center. We take our responsibility as educators seriously, and your choice to send your child to the Little Archers Learning Center must be met with an earnest effort to prepare your child appropriately for the future.

The Little Archers Learning Center is the leading early childhood educational institution where the excellence of children are cultivated by celebrating their uniqueness and diversity through providing a Fun Learning Experience everyday.

In thinking about what we want our pupils to be like in the future, we have to enunciate a clear vision of what we think that they should be, and we have to make sure that this vision is intricately connected to how we are going to achieve it. We have recalibrated our Mission-Vision to become the “leading early childhood educational institution where the excellence of children are cultivated by celebrating their uniqueness and diversity through providing a Fun Learning Experience everyday.”

Since this is our objective, we are led further to determine what skills and competencies do our pupils need to have in order for them to nurture and cultivate their excellence. 

Ultimately, the question that we have been led to ask, while we were reflecting about the status of our curriculum, is what kind of people do we want to develop at the Little Archers Learning Center?
