A holistic approach encourages children to make connections between subjects–for instance, using their creative skills to solve a practical science or social problem, or approaching a foreign language similar to the way they approach a mathematical equation.

This kind of teaching does not confine to just academics, but extends to extra-curricular. In fact, parents and educators would do well to create environments where children can experiment and explore. They learn skills like music, dance, chess, yoga and more for their all-round development.
