Our Curriculum

Once children are helped to perceive themselves as authors and inventors, once they are helped to discover the pleasures of inquiry, their motivation and interest explode.

Our Reggio-inspired approach provides an enabling environment in which children can lead their own projects that develop through different interests and questioning observed by our Educators, who then endeavour to support this line of inquiry.

We put emphasis on researching and reflecting on the process of the children's learning rather than placing all the emphasis on end products or outcomes. We do this via long term projects and pedagogical documentation. Pedagogical documentation enables our educators to study and honour the children’s views and interests. We do this in the form of written observations, photos, voice recordings and video media that we can later revisit and reflect on. Reflective practice is fundamental in how we discover each child’s best motivator for learning. Once we know what makes our children tick, we can tailor their experiences around this to form a lifelong love of learning.

Here you can see a small sample of some of these child-led projects above and below through video media and pedagogical documentation.

Emergent Curriculum

Listening to the children's curiosities and questions is what leads our emergent curriculum. Children and educators develop projects collaboratively, each learning during the process meaning our emergent curriculum is co-constructed. 

 

Once a child asks a question, it is our role as educators to facilitate finding the answer; not just give it to them. We believe that children are not empty vessels to be filled with facts, they are powerful people, full of the desire and ability to grow and build their own knowledge.
