Child Led Learning

There are schools all over the world utilizing this concept in a variety of settings.

Some educational institutions utilize a child led learning environment others ”teach” from this awareness and others blend both teaching styles into their room.

There are other schools which allow their students to decide what, how and even when they want to learn – for instance children are not pushed to read before they are ready and show an interest, even if it is years later than their peers before they learn to read.
