"We believe in creating a warm and loving environment for every child; implementing a curriculum that promotes a love for life-long learning, for people and for society; and engaging teachers of character, passion and creativity."
We strive towards achieving this philosophy by creating a conducive physical environment coupled with an atmosphere of acceptance and security for every child. Our philosopy undergirds and forms the basis of our curriculum planning and we recognise that teachers are instrumental in developing and guiding each child to realise their potential and creativities.
Our curriculum integrates each child's unique learning styles and promotes learning through small group settings. Regardless of class sizes, children participate in learning activities in small groups of 3 or 4 children at a time.
Teachers make observations of children throughout the day and incorporate children's interest into the curriculum planning.
We believe that:
Children - Children are competent, strong, inventive and full of ideas.
Environment - The environment is the 3rd teacher
Social Interactions - We emphasise the social and emotional interactions of people in the environment and the co-construction of knowledge.
Collaboration - We collaborate with teachers, students, parents and the community.
Documentation - We document children's experiences for opportunities to revisit, reflect and interpret.
Communication - We encourage children to represent their ideas through different kinds of media.
