Our Early Learning Centre is blessed to have staff who are passionate about young children and dedicated to co-constructing knowledge through each child’s learning journey.
We are participants and collaborators as children make sense of the world, explore patterns and relationships and investigate and play with materials, ideas and people.
Our pedagogy is also influenced by in the Reggio Emilia approach which has been widely adopted across the globe and is based on these key principles:
- Children must have some control over the direction of their learning.
- Children must be able to learn through the experiences of touching, moving, listening, seeing and hearing.
- Children have a relationship with other children and with material items in the world that they must be allowed to explore.
- Children must have endless ways and opportunities to express themselves.
The Reggio Emilia approach to teaching young children puts the natural development of children, as well as the close relationships that they share with their environment, at the centre of its philosophy.
