Inquiry is at the heart of our teaching and learning in Early Childhood. We encourage children to wonder and explore, to step into the unknown, to take risks and to be unconstrained by right answers. Teachers pose questions to help children connect to previous learning, to engage conversations and to deepen and extend understanding. Our curriculum is deliberately designed to develop our students’ intellectual capacity and nurture their insatiable curiosity. We stretch our students and offer them opportunities to innovate, create and play together within a community of learners. In Early Childhood we are passionate about children believing in themselves and their great potential. We encourage children to work independently as well as collaboratively and to understand that they are the primary directors of their own learning. We devote time every day to creating a classroom community where children feel welcome, valued, known, seen and heard. We guide children to further their respect for the rights of others; and most importantly instill a lifelong passion for learning. Our Early Childhood curriculum is deliberately designed to develop our students’ intellectual capacity and nurture their insatiable curiosity. We offer them opportunities to innovate, create and play together within a community of learners. The teachers design a balanced day; one that includes direct literacy, math, science, and writing lessons as well as open explorations.
