Developing the “whole learner”

SevenHabitsLearner_preview_GraphicAt iLEAD Encino we believe there is an implicit and an explicit curriculum to teach.

Beyond the required skills and knowledge to be imparted, we place equal emphasis on the social and emotional development of every one of our learners.

Each learner has a facilitator assigned to them. The facilitator handles both academic advisement and social & emotional development. As an independent learning center and as a part of the iLEAD family we are working to develop “The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Learners” across our entire culture. Our directive & corrective policies are a natural reflection of these habits and we challenge each learner to adopt these habits into their daily lives as self-directed and self-disciplined learners and future leaders .

It takes all of us working together! 
At iLEAD Encino, we believe that it takes all of us – learners, facilitators, staff and parents – working together cooperatively to provide for the successful education of our children.  We should all aim to work together in order to develop students’ unique talents, life skills and to instill a lifelong passion for learning.

To this end, we all agree to the following goals:
As iLEAD Encino Facilitators & Staff we will do our best to:

  • provide a quality instructional program for each learner
  • provide a safe learning environment
  • provide programs and activities that respond to the developmental needs of each learner
  • guide learners in developing their own self-discipline, self-respect, and self-confidence in order to participate at iLEAD and in their community as responsible members through the use of The Seven Habits.

As iLEAD Encino Parents we will do our best to:

  • send well-rested and well-fed children prepared with all necessary materials
  • check our children’s work and prep-work on a regular basis
  • provide our child with suitable study conditions at home
  • encourage 20-30 minutes of independent reading daily
  • provide cooperation and support with appropriate corrective direction
  • send our children to the studio on time

DancePractice2 As iLEAD Encino Learners we will do our best to:

  • understand and master The Seven Habits
  • ask questions and tell the facilitator when work is not understood
  • work to our fullest potential at all times
  • complete projects
  • be in the studio on time
  • have required supplies available at home and at the studio
  • actively participate in learning studio discussions
