Caring and Nurturing Environment
How important is a caring and nurturing environment? In psychology, the nature vs nurture debate has gone back and forth incessantly. Whilst we cannot change our genes, we can create and foster a nurturing environment, which assists in developing a student into becoming a well-balanced and healthy minded individual. A caring and nurturing environment will also develop improved cognitive skills, ethical and moral behavior, as well as peer bonding skills for improved academic performance and social behavior.
During their stay at Raffles American School, boarding students are exposed to a friendly, caring, and nurturing environment. The environment assists in helping to mold each child’s unique character and maintains a safe space for learning and living. Students can approach staff for guidance and advice, and learn to overcome obstacles in a constructive manner. The boarding environment is also structured through specific outings, socials, and activities in order to develop each student as a holistic learner and nurture each child’s unique attributes.
