ENROL A CHILD
We provide a framework for holistic learning and development brought to life by our dedicated Sunshine teachers, who create a meaningful play environment, interact with children when appropriate, co-construct learning through questioning, suggestion, demonstration and encouragement, and monitor and assess both the children and the activity to inform future planning.
OUR APPROACH IS CENTERED ON
Each child is a unique individual. Diverse interests, abilities and learning styles blend into a vibrant learning community supported by experienced teachers, providing enriching experiences where aspirations take shape and soar.
We strive to engage child, parent, teacher, and staff. All stakeholders play an important role in defining the way children learn and grow.
We plan for a balance of directed and facilitated learning experiences. Child-directed learning happens when children interact with materials, peers, and adults and form their own perception of events and things. Our knowledgeable teachers then skillfully scaffold your child to the next level through appropriate and meaningful experiences, to help the child connect thinking with concepts and principles that can be applied in different contexts. Effective thinking and problem-solving are entrenched when combing both approaches.
Professionalism armed with early childhood education qualifications that range from certificates to Bachelor’s degrees, our Sunshine teachers bring a wealth of knowledge and skills in working with young children in the classroom. As members of the larger learning community, they constantly look to strengthen and broaden their area of expertise, adapting their teaching methods to new findings, ideas, and theories.
Partnership with Families
We strive to build effective partnerships with families through knowledge sharing, active learning, respecting and responding to each other’s expertise and conveying expectations with honesty.
OUR TEACHING AND LEARNING APPROACH FACILITATES LEARNING
THROUGH CURIOSITY & OBSERVATION
Children are active, curious, competent learners. As curiosity is ignited in their early years, children become aware, explore and discover, to construct new knowledge to make sense of the world. The excitement about learning and interaction with others will give every child a headstart.
THROUGH PURPOSEFUL PLAY
Play is a natural channel for young children’s thinking, learning, and development and is central to their holistic well-being. It expands their minds and influences many dimensions of development and is a powerful tool for learning. Play is also a way of strengthening meaningful relationships and co-operation with others and supports the development and use of language. An enriched play environment, both indoors and outdoors, will stimulate children’s imagination, extend their sense of wonder, enable them to experience success and develop a positive attitude towards learning.
As children play and share experiences, they will encounter questions, problems and conflicts. They will learn to negotiate and find solutions together.
Sunshine teachers are there every step of the way, to guide your child as they navigate and make sense of the world in their everyday learning.
