Just what does WinterPromise mean when they say they offer the “Experience Approach”?  By that we mean that WinterPromise is just brimming with experiences:  learning experiences, real-life experiences, and more.  What are examples of these kinds of experiences?  Here’s a sampling to show you what we mean:

This is just a sampling of the kind of “Experiences” that WinterPromise offers to parents.  Each one has an educational focus, not busy work.  Together with interactive notebook pages, and DVD suggestions you’ll love, parents will find there is something for everyone in our family-oriented packages.  The experiences WP offers are based on the Multiple Intelligences, and each scheduled activity appeals to one or more of these learning avenues that connect with a certain type of learner.  No matter how many different kinds of learners are in your family, there are plenty of experiences just right for them!

THAT’S the “Experience” Approach at Work in WinterPromise!
