“It is an absolute thrill and honour to be a part of the ACT team of heart-centered leaders!! Everything about ACT’s teaching philosophy completely resonates with what I believe and know to be true of how children. Children grow best when we see life by looking through their eyes and understanding what they need. We must continuously adjust the program and be relentlessly solution-focused to accommodate the ever-changing needs of each individual. Learning is never one size fits all and at ACT Learning Centre there is a complete understanding of how each child learns so they can thrive in all areas of development on the level they are at for optimum success.”
