Our teaching staff use their professional training to provide the best education and care for your child/children. Research tells us that the emergent curriculum provides the best learning outcomes for our children.
The emergent curriculum is described as "a way of planning, based on the students interests and passions".
Our programs are responsive to the individual children's strengths, interests and needs to allow children to develop to their full potential. We have found, and studies show that children learn when their learning is meaningful rather than just the mastering of tasks. The emergent curriculum is planning the focus of learning on what happens within the day around the interactions between children, parents and teachers. All contribute ideas, resources and passion about a particular interest creating an exciting way of learning new things.
Our teaching team follow the children's lead and then introduce new activities to sustain their interests and deepen their explorations. Teachers also link the different curriculum areas such as mathematics concepts, science, reading etc into the children's interests.
Our emphasis as teachers is focused on developing social skills and learning dispositions such as thinking flexibly, thinking about thinking, persisting, striving for accuracy, gathering data through all senses and many more through the learning interests of the children.
