Child-led and play-based learning Curriculum

At System Little House, we passionately believe in authentic child-led, play-based, Reggio-inspired learning curriculum:

The programme is diverse by using open-ended play and art experiences we enable the children to make their own choices around learning centres in and outside of the classroom.We encourage the children to explore ideas and themes drawn by their interest and enthusiasm and document their progress so we can later review and revisit the experience with them. when given enough space and time the class will naturally work together, communicating, collaborating, experimenting & solving problems.

How Do We Implement Our Curriculum?

Let’s discover how a class session is implemented in everyday learning…

1

A child or group of children show an interest in a topic – any topic – and they want to find out more about that topic.

2

Our roles as teachers & educators are:

First, to listen to the children – identify the source of their curiosity, support and facilitate their learning in that topic.

Then, to collaborate with the children and the teaching team to explore the topic and learn together.

Last but not least, to reflect and document the learning opportunities that presented themselves and the development goals that were achieved.

3

The children are presented with daily provocations to ignite their curiosity on their topic, to explore, to discover, and to create. Different children have different ideas, but, when given enough space and time the class will naturally work together, communicating, collaborating, experimenting & solving problems.

OUR CLASSES

The classes are divided by age group and family’s reference to guarantee that the children are surrounded in the most suitable and provoking environment which benefits their growth. Our classes are arranged according to ages with different aged classes from 18 months to 6.5 yrs. Our daily programme varies considerably dependent on the age of the child as well as weather conditions & outside air quality.  We try to give the children as much outside play time as possible.

For the ‘Under Three’s’ we offer options for part time attendance and earlier pick up times at midday, after lunch, or a nap followed by activities until 3pm. Children over three have a longer day and finish at 3pm. All children attend 5 days per week.
