Emergent Curriculum and Project Work
Our educators observe and document the interactions, discussions, and fascinations of children. By developing learning opportunities from these observations, the curriculum “emerges” from children’s interests and ideas.
Our educators deliver this emergent curriculum through project work, which allows children to explore these areas of interest in detail.
We take a child-led project approach as inspired by the Reggio Emilia Approach. The projects emerge based on the child’s interests. Educators are thoughtful about introducing a broad range of opportunities, from art to music to early language, math, science and nature experiences, in support of the project. By exploring projects of children’s interest in great detail, children are excited by the learning process. This enthusiasm for knowledge, combined with the ability to experience project work in detail, will foster a predisposition for “life-long” learning.
At Little Bright Explorers we have created a culture where our educators are also constantly learning through research, training and professional development to be leaders in early childhood education.
