This SAA video takes a closer look at the Suzuki Early Childhood Education zero to 3-year-old class: how the Suzuki triangle (parent, child, teacher) is applied to this foundational program, how teachers see the growth and development of children through skill layering, and how we teach parents to become good observers of their own children. Teaching techniques and the synergy and partnership of this team teaching approach are discussed.

Dr. Suzuki’s goals for all children included development of the whole child, unfolding the natural potential to learn and becoming a good and happy person. That’s why, in 1993, Dr. Suzuki and the Board of Directors of the International Suzuki Association (ISA) approved the curriculum developed by Dorothy Jones and named her school in London, Ontario as the first World Centre for Suzuki Early Childhood Education Teacher Training.
