Chungkang is pioneering a new model of childhood education culture that embodies children’s nature as a value. We are the first institution in Korea to implement a new form of childhood education with nature, play and community as its core values. By pursuing experiential learning rather than one-way “given” education, the teacher respects the natures of children themselves and creates an environment in which they play freely and grow happily in nature. This education is not based on cerebral learning in a classroom, but on learning experiences in which teachers and children realize the value of togetherness while playing in nature.
As well as obtaining a kindergarten teacher certificate (level 2) from the Ministry of Education, students can acquire special abilities through the advanced programs of the nature-play community. Three years of systematic personality education programs allow our students to grow into reflective teachers who interact with others and embody the values of community.
