Character Development

Primus Schoolhouse children and their families experience a unique environment which truly nurtures the children’s development and lays the foundations of good character.

Social-emotional skills and good character can and should be nurtured from birth. Primus Schoolhouse believes character development is fundamentally important, which is why teaching values is at the core of our philosophy.

We know children are capable of developing foundational social-emotional skills and character traits at an early age.

With this in mind – and knowing the extent to which children’s early social-emotional development can shape their ability to cope, relate to others and show compassion later in life – at Primus Schoolhouse we nurture the children’s social-emotional development in a purposeful way.

Character development for preschoolers at Primus Schoolhouse is developed through the Virtues Project.

The Virtues Project is based on the beliefs and virtues valued by diverse cultures and world religions. Its mission is to provide empowering strategies that inspire the practice of virtues in everyday life. The Virtues Project enables us to address not only our core values, but also to meet the personal and social development goals at the heart of our goal for the children to develop good character.

The Virtues Project helps us to enjoy a respectful, friendly, inclusive and cooperative environment and to empower the children’s character development.

“Sow a thought, reap an action;
sow an action, reap a habit;
sow a habit, reap a character;
sow a character, reap a destiny.”
(Stephen R Covey, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People)
