The values of Seljaborg are play, communication, and joy of learning
At Seljaborg, the most highly respected experts are John Dewey, Howard Gardner, William Damon, and Daniel Goleman. We believe that it is important to develop children's social skills because they are the foundation for becoming active members of society. We believe that it is essential to encourage friendship. Children are social creatures and need opportunities to communicate and express themselves in many different ways. When children have strong communication and play skills, it helps them develop their social skills and strengthens their sense of self.
