What and who shaped our teaching
Here at St Peters Childcare we are continually reviewing our teaching practice. Some of the teaching research that we have used is available online. These are some links that you can follow that will enable you to understand what we do and why we do it. A lot of our learning and research has been facilitated through Educational Leadership Project who provided us with much thought, provocation and insight into wider readings.
Mark Zukerberg's, creator of Facebook, father once said, "Probably the best thing I can say is something that my wife and I have always beleived in. Rather than impose upon your kids or try and steer their lives in a certain direction, to recognize what their strengths are and support their strengths and support the development of things they're passionate about."
