Our educators provide an open ended, emergent learning environment which encourages exploration, investigation, imagination, communication and promotes each child’s sense of agency by encouraging children to make choices about their learning. This encourages and supports children to become competent and confident learners within our community.
The learning environment allows children to engage with a variety of experiences both planned through intentional teaching and spontaneous experiences, this allows children to explore, learn and discover their surroundings through a play-based curriculum and uninterrupted free play. Educators recognise that both planned and spontaneous experiences, whether in play or routine, are valuable teaching moments and learning opportunities.
Children are provided with an environment that fosters a range of developmental areas with a focus on the importance of the natural environment.
Every experience that happens in a day can be used as a time to teach skills and development!
For children, play is learning. There is no better space for kids to learn than the outdoors, and there is no better play resource than nature.
Our outdoor areas have been designed to immerse children in nature whilst they develop gross motor skills and to promote learning of sustainable practices. Nature play significantly improves all aspects of child development – physical, cognitive, social and emotional.
Playing outdoors grows resilience, self-confidence, initiative, creativity and more. It encourages the joy of movement; it nurtures wild imaginations, experimentation, friendships, social connections and behaviour.
