As part of The Bellingham Promise, our core beliefs include that all children should be loved, the whole child is important and every child can learn at high levels. I thought of these core beliefs while reading this recent article on the Washington Post.

This blog from a director of early childhood education at the Calgary French and International School in Canada outlines the intricacies and many challenges of supporting and loving the whole child.

It is a thought-provoking and emotional read from the perspective of a teacher.
