Growing and learning through play
We tend to like our routines and it is very important for children to have consistency, It makes even adults feel more secure and gives the illusion that everything is under control.
However, life rarely goes as planned and often throws wrenches in our carefully placed gears.
At CLP, we follow a daily routine but we also learn to roll with it, we learn to embrace unexpected changes. One of the most important lessons learned working with children is to let go of any pre- plans and observe the situation we are in, in other words, if the children are having a great session, building, engaged in deep learning it might be that a story time get’s a little shortened to have a bit more time doing what we need to do.

Colour plays an important role in creating our playschool environment that supports children’s’ visual stimulation in their learning and development as colours impact individual’s mood, emotional well-being, productivity, learning and behaviour.
Children are encouraged to move freely throughout the environment, learning to use each area and access materials and resources independently.
