The Early Childhood Centre
The Early Childhood Centre (ECC) comprises Reception 3 and Reception 4.
We believe that every child holds a deep curiosity and potential, which drives their interest to understand their world and their place within it. This is in regard to the innovative and inspiring Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood education, which values the child as strong, capable, resilient, and rich with wonder and knowledge.
We ensure that the children are actively learning, primarily through play, as they inquire about the world around them. We offer challenging experiences that foster high-level thinking skills and develop appropriate communication skills. We support the children as they gain independence and confidently develop different relationships with their peers and adults. We use strategies such as modelling, open questioning, engaging in shared thinking, and problem solving to extend children’s thinking and learning.
