Exploring & Discovering (Ages 3 to 5)
We acknowledge that experiences during the early years set the foundation for all future learning. Thus, we make best use of this important stage of learning and make the children` first transition from home to group experiences outside of the family and to new physical environments meaningful.
Our curriculum enhances children`s natural curiosity and is responsive to their needs, interests, abilities, and approaches to learning. Opportunities are provided for them to plan and choose their own activities from a range of learning areas and projects. Each child`s home culture and language are also valued and linked with school experiences. In all areas, we provide vital support for them to be active inquirers and lifelong learners.
Our Early Years (EY) 1 & 2 classes complete four units of inquiry while our EY 3 children explore six units of inquiry each year. Learning experiences in the Early Years build on children`s interests and are based on inquiry, which takes many forms such as play. Our daily timetable allows time for the children to play, explore the environment and investigate what triggers their curiosity.
