Learning: ELC 3yo to Year 2
As we welcome our youngest students into the Korowa community, we begin to lay the foundations for future learning in terms of behaviours, skills and understandings.
In the Early Learning Centre, our 3 year old and 4 year old children follow a curriculum that is informed by “Belonging, Being and Becoming – The Early Years Learning Framework” and the guiding principles of the Reggio Emilia approach to early learning.
Our aim is to create a social and physical environment that promotes the wonder of learning and its value as a lifelong pursuit.
We appreciate and respect each individual child and the particular interests, skills and abilities they bring to the setting.
We create a learning environment which allows for rich play experiences that support the development of each child.
Setting the Foundations
As our girls move up into Prep and beyond, we begin the gradual introduction into the formalities of school learning. English and Mathematics are our core subjects as we set the foundations here for all future learning in any discipline. A wide range of specialist subjects are also introduced.
During these years, the girls are assisted to develop the crucial dispositions for learning such as curiosity, cooperation, confidence, creativity, commitment, enthusiasm, persistence and imagination.
