Emergent Curriculum and Learning through Play
Throughout our licensed programs, children are closely observed by program teachers and are given opportunities for learning based on their observed interests. We believe that a child should be an active participant in their learning and therefore our teachers develop projects around the emerging interests of the children in their group. Through these projects children and teachers work as a collaborative team learning by exploring and manipulating objects, asking questions, solving problems and performing experiments.
We believe that children should learn through play and that play is essential and fundamental to a child’s social, emotional, physical, and intellectual development. Learning within our programs is made visible through observation and documentation. Teachers observe the children as they learn, take photographs, and document what children say as they learn. Our rooms are filled with evidence of children’s learning through play and discovery.
