Jackman ICS Philosophy

The Jackman ICS mission is excellence in childhood education, teacher education, and research in a culturally and economically diverse environment

  • Every student is viewed as an individual, unique in her/his combination of developmental readiness, culture, lifestyle, learning approaches, temperament, and special talents. 
  • Our program and teaching reflect our belief that students have different needs at different developmental stages.  Our approach is both rigorous and flexible, encouraging the construction of knowledge by teaching students to formulate questions, analyze, and solve problems. 
  • We are committed to helping each student master important subject matter, learn to think critically, creatively, and with empathy, and understand and appreciate the values and traditions in our school comunity and in broader society, and develop a diverse sense of personal and social responsibility. 
  • The Dr. Eric Jackman Insitute of Child Study is a community of parents and teachers who work in partnership to support and enhance the learning of each student.
  • Jackman ICS provides an environment that fosters research and professional inquiry.  The School makes a significant contribution to the education, human development, and applied psychology work within our University and in the wider educational community in Canada and internationally. 
  • The School serves a role in preparing pre-service teachers for their professional life through its contribuitons to the Jackman ICS Master of Arts in Child Study and Education program, providing both practicum experience, mentoring and course instruction by our teaching staff.
