The curriculum is child focused. It develops over time, and is based on the educators’ observations of the children’s interests, strengths and abilities. Educators respond to what children are engaged with and work to enhance and facilitate learning. The teachers employ intentional teaching strategies such as shared thinking and problem solving to foster high level thinking skills in every child. This creates a ‘live’ curriculum that is meaningful and relevant.
