There are seven guiding principles of Responsive Classroom Curriculum. These principles include: social and emotional growth is as important as academic growth, how children learn is as important as what they learn, social interaction is imperative for cognitive growth, knowing the child, individually, culturally and developmentally, is as important as knowing the content.

Morning Meetings are an invaluable investment that builds relationships with each child and develops a rich community for all learners.  From day one, a sense of belonging and a growth mindset begin. This sets the foundation and culture of the classroom. Through many opportunities in sharing and group activities these skills of attention, listening, expression, problem solving, collaboration and cooperative are developed. These skills, coupled with explicit social and emotional instruction, provide children a solid understanding for every lesson, every transition time, every lining-up, every upset and conflict, all day and all year long. A child demonstrating, risk taking, empathy, excellent listening skills, asking high level questions with the assertiveness to pose it, and observes a situation from multiple perspectives will be a strong learner. These skills are paramount to academic success. Through explicit modeling, experience, practice, and extension through social interactions, children continually build character and are more likely to becoming successful learners. This nurturing and inspiring culture encourages curious, confident, joyful learners.
