Our emergent curriculum from Stage 1 to 5 builds upon the interests, ideas, thoughts and observations of children as children will learn what sparks their curiosity. Team planning is an essential component of the emergent curriculum. Teachers work together to formulate the possible directions of a provocation, the materials needed, and possible parent and/or community support and involvement.
Whilst learning is viewed as a process or journey; education is about building relationships of respect and trust amongst children, parents and teachers and creating connections between ideas and the environment. We thereby support children in our care to develop and grow optimally and in doing so cultivate a lifelong passion for learning and exploration amongst our eager, wide-eyed young children in our purpose-built school.
The layout of the physical space at Reddam House has been designed to encourage choices, problem solving and exploration. Teachers are skilled observers who determine individual needs and build on existing gifts and talents. The approach is balanced and giving, without undue academic pressure. The methodology encourages a feeling of belonging and instils innate confidence in children. Their learning environment is made to feel safe, welcoming and authentic.
Documentation of work in progress is made visible on large panels throughout the classroom, thereby keeping the memory of the work vivid and alive.
