Our programmes are child centered and teacher supported. We welcome parent participation and look forward to working together with you in planning for new experiences and moments of discovery for your child.
We will be documenting your child’s thoughts and processes as this allows us to reflect on their progress and plan for future learning. We welcome opportunities to share this documentation with you. We believe in making your child’s learning visible to you and to them.
