The Preschool Room

Shaping the world of tomorrow through the children of today

A Play Based Curriculum is an approach to planning which values observing, responding to, expanding, and building upon the existing knowledge, ideas and interests of the children within the group.

‘Interest Projects’ are things, topics and events which fascinate and stimulate the curiosity of children. The educator takes the interests and combines this with his/her knowledge of child development (the skills, knowledge and behaviours of children in the age group) to form the learning program. All projects will focus on interests of the children but will be reflective of their learning needs, we will be actively incorporating literacy and numeracy elements to prepare them to be ready for formal schooling. How the children are learning will be documented through a variety of ways which will be available through displays on the wall, booklets, summative assessment and through children’s portfolios.
