Q. What is the DK Schoolhouse Education Philosophy?
The heart of DK Schoolhouse’s teaching philosophy is to foster the skills of resiliency and emotional intelligence, which are crucial for promoting academic, social and personal success. We focus on instilling a love of learning in each child and helping them build valuable life skills to help them succeed later in life.
