Play-based learning

We strongly believe in play-based learning in the early years as an approach to teaching and learning. Children’s natural desire to explore the world around them is nurtured in meaningful child-initiated and teacher guided investigations. In the early years children explore through inquiry, which comes in the form of play experiences.

We are looking forward to supporting your child’s desire for learning. We will do this by sharing classrooms and  collaborating on a regular bases. This will offer children the opportunity to explore freely.

Learning Journey

Preschool will be inquiring into four units of inquiry throughout the school year. ‘How we express ourselves’ will be our year-long unit. The remaining units will last between 6-8 weeks each.

(1) How we express ourselves

(2) Who we are

(3) Sharing the planet

(4) How the world works
