The 3C's Focus for Classroom Happiness


All branches of programming at Oak Learners show exemplary ways of implementing the 3C’s of classroom happiness. 

  • Creativity focused learning, letting the students be naturally inquisitive and creative learners
  • Confidence boosting with personalized teacher to student ratio to allow students to get the tailored personalized help needed 6:1
  • Community building with teachers and students inside classes and camps

Most importantly, schools must encourage success for all types of learners. As Kelly Farrell mentions in the article “This year, back to school may still look a little different, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing – it’s a wonderful opportunity to set new routines, new expectations and new practices of gratitude and recognition for our children.”
