Philosophy of Teaching
I believe that children grow and develop through stages and that learning takes place best when the child is ready. Children should be allowed to move through stages at their own rate of development, using learning styles that best suit them. Our classroom provides a wide range of materials, experiences and unstructured activity periods giving children the time to examine, explore and absorb a rich environment using all their senses. Emphasis is placed on the opportunities to learn and discover through play and the importance play provides in every area of development.
