The Maven Education methodology offers a distinctive, innovative approach to education for even our youngest learners. Sightseers (0-3 months), Inquisitors (3-6 months), and Explorers (6-9 months) embark upon their educational journey by exploring the first nine of the character-based traits that will shape their view of the world around them, which include:

 

Sightseers (0-3 months)

  • Inquiry

  • Patience 

  • Communication

  • Attentiveness

 

Inquisitors (3-6 months)

  • Independence 

  • Resilience/Tenacity  

 

Explorers (6-9 months)

  • Collaboration
