We focus on play as a child’s tool for learning. We will continue to run an indoor/outdoor program where possible and plan experiences which create “opportunities” for the children to make choices about their learning (ie: intentional teaching). We welcome, and highly value, parent involvement and communication as “partnerships” between parents and educators is integral to a curriculum, which is relevant to the children, their families and the community.
