Our curriculum approach is child-centred and emergent. We believe that children learn through hands-on experimentation within their environment. Teachers play an important role and will guide children based on their own unique abilities. Staff observe and listen carefully to the children as they play. The observations guide our curriculum as staff create opportunities for children to deepen their thinking, represent their understanding and encounter new prospectives. We believe that each moment we share with the children helps us build relationships and creates a learning environment that is nurturing to children, families, and educators. By creating a safe, secure and warm environment children develop an eagerness to learn.
