Being comfortable with yourself and others is an important part of being a healthy and happy person. Children who know themselves, are confident, and respect and care about others, feel good about their place in the community and excel in and out of the classroom.
Growth Education at Fayerweather is designed to explore self, health, safety and human development. Students are given concrete information about a wide range of subjects from human biology and psychology, to keeping themselves safe. The program provides a context in which children’s questions, curiosities or anxieties about any of life’s complex issues can be explored in a supportive, straightforward manner, respectful of differences. The goal of the Growth Education curriculum is for children to be empowered to make life-enhancing decisions that impact their physical, emotional and mental well-being.
