At our centre, we follow a comprehensive program planning approach that incorporates various elements to create a rich and engaging learning environment for children. Here are some of the key components of our program planning:
Floor Book Approach:
We believe in the power of documentation and reflection. Our educators use the Floor Book approach, where they document children’s experiences, interests, and learning moments through photographs, drawings, and written observations. This allows us to tailor our curriculum to children’s individual needs and interests, ensuring meaningful and relevant learning experiences.
Parent Engagement through Storypark:
We understand the importance of collaboration between parents and educators. Through the Storypark platform, we facilitate regular communication, sharing updates, photos, and videos of children’s experiences and learning milestones. Parents can actively engage in their child’s learning journey, providing valuable insights and feedback.
We enhance children’s learning by organizing incursions and excursions. Incursions bring external experts and resources into the centre, exposing children to different cultural, artistic, and educational experiences. Excursions involve supervised outings to local places of interest, such as parks, museums, and community facilities, allowing children to explore the world around them and develop a deeper understanding of their community.
We believe in the importance of connecting with the local community. Our educators organize regular community walks where children explore their neighbourhood, visit nearby shops, parks, and interact with community members. This not only enhances their understanding of the world but also promotes a sense of belonging and community engagement.
Play is at the heart of our curriculum. We recognize the immense value of play in supporting children’s holistic development. Our program incorporates play-based learning activities, allowing children to explore, experiment, and engage in hands-on experiences. Play-based learning fosters creativity, problem-solving, social skills, and critical thinking in a fun and engaging manner.
