A Typical Day
Our approach is founded on the belief that the curriculum should be child-centred, based on practical, hands-on, concrete experiences, so that each child can build his/her knowledge, skills, concepts and attitudes through understanding. We use a thematic topic based approach as a vehicle to teach all areas of the curriculum and develop basic skills.
We have developed an integrated curriculum which is:
- Broad - it introduces children to a wide range of knowledge, understanding and skills.
- Balanced - each part is allocated sufficient time relevant to the children’s age and experience.
- Relevant - subjects are taught in a meaningful way that relates to children’s lives and experience now and in the future.
- Memorable – the curriculum provides practical experiences and rich opportunities for high quality learning and wider personal development and well-being.
