- Respond: We respond to child's voice, both verbal and non verbal signals and cues. We aim our response to be warm, sensitive, prompt and appropriate. We understand children's queries, thinking, theories and interest guide our curriculum
- Remember: We try to understand why its in the market and remember the times we spent without it. We consciously encourage to think 'Do we really need it to make us happy?' or "How can we have a better time without it?"
