In our Kindergarten programme the boys and girls are introduced to four units of inquiry that help them to make sense of the world around them. They inquire into, ‘who we are’ as learners and as friends, ‘how we express ourselves’ through language and art, ‘how the world works’ through a scientific mindset and ‘sharing the planet’ which enquires into our rights and responsibilities when sharing limited resources with one another. All of this is done in a Reggio inspired environment and through an inquiry approach to learning. By reporting to the Early Years Learning Frameworks (EYLF) we ensure all of our special littlest members of the Scotch community receive a balanced and socially stimulating education.
