...children have a right to develop their maximum abilities and that teachers have the responsibility to provide opportunities for this development to occur.
...children are individuals and they must be allowed to develop at their own pace.
...children regardless of sex, race, religion or ethnic origin must have the same opportunities and advantages as all other children.
...children have the right to develop a positive self-image and feel good about themselves.
...children will be treated with love and respect so they in turn will learn to treat others with that same love and respect.
