Our Philosophy of Curriculum:
Our curriculum is inspired by Reggio Emilia, Waldorf, and BC Early Learning Frame Work. Our curriculum is play and project-based that will promote collaborations in amongst the children and the classrooms. Educators will promote well-being and belonging & engagement with others, materials, and the world, communication and literacies, identities, social responsibility, and diversity following the guidelines of BC Early Learning Framework. We recognize that children have a hundred languages as Reggio Emilia philosophy suggests, hence they will be encouraged to explore and venture the world with their own creativity and expressions guided by educators. The environment that provides encouragement, love, warmth, gratitude, reverence, wonder joy, humor, happiness, and free is a key determinant for children’s success and joy in their learning.
Implementation of the curriculum: We employ the philosophy through the following:
- Sensory activities
- Messy play
- Meaningful relationships/ Collaborations
- Natural materials
Strategies to implement the philosophy of the curriculum
All educators will conduct daily observations to find children’s interests and strengths to provide learning opportunities through projects, invitation to play, provocations, and individual activities throughout the day. Children will have the freedom to choose which activity to participate. Children will have opportunities of both being in a large group as well as a small group depending on their temperaments and/or needs. Educators will observe and document children’s exploration and discovery to create documentation which may include photographs, children’s work, stories, and reflections.
