Cur­riculum

We fol­low the Finnish early year’s cur­riculum with an emphas­is on the Curi­os­ity Approach. The Curi­os­ity Approach is a mod­ern-day approach to Early Child­hood edu­ca­tion that take the best parts from Reg­gio Emil­ia, Stein­er, Te Whāriki, and with a sprinkle of Montessori.

The CLP is for inquis­it­ive curi­ous and cre­at­ive minds. Chil­dren need the oppor­tun­ity to touch, handle and invest­ig­ate. To explore how things work and use items that fol­low their own indi­vidu­al learn­ing style.

Learn­ing in all areas

In our hol­ist­ic learn­ing envir­on­ment, we attach great value to the devel­op­ment of social skills, self-devel­op­ment and the motiv­a­tion for learn­ing in all areas.

Your child will be exposed to math­em­at­ic­al and sci­entif­ic sub­jects and will have the oppor­tun­ity to express their cre­ativ­ity through arts and crafts, music and drama and togeth­er with our high-qual­ity teach­ing and nat­ur­al mater­i­als, we sup­port the joy of exper­i­ment­a­tion both indoors and out.

Along­side all of the above, the Curi­os­ity Approach to early learn­ing is that we believe that the children’s envir­on­ment should look attract­ive and invit­ing, that offer sub­lim­in­al mes­sages to come & play. Enti­cing chil­dren into a won­drous land of magic, awe and won­der, whereby they come deeply engrossed and engaged in play. How­ever, this approach does mean that our play­school gets messy, ‘untidy’ and most def­in­itely the toys get trans­por­ted, mixed up and left strewn across the floor and every far-reach­ing corner of our play­school. But we wouldn’t have it any oth­er way and when we are all done we work togeth­er to organ­ise our envir­on­ment for anoth­er day.
