Courageous and Inspired Learners

We value play in our Early Learning Centre and believe that children learn naturally through a rich play environment. With open learning spaces and aspects of Reggio Emilia, our learners are engaged, inspired and encouraged to follow their interests, grow and to take risks and be courageous. We believe the ideal context for exploration and learning is through being outdoors, as well as engaging in nature play and loose parts play.

We acknowledge the image of the child as being full of wonder and curiosity, and capable of constructing his or her own knowledge. We aim to create lifelong learners and strive to achieve this by starting with the interests of the child. Through The Arts, we focus on guiding children to represent their ideas through various symbolic means such as; drawing, painting, clay work, verbal description, physical movement, storytelling, writing and socio-dramatic play.
