The Learning Philosophy at Cubby Tales believes that children are active learners supported and challenged by adults. Our learning curriculum and its application is guided by 58 key experiences in language and literacy, mathematics and science, social-emotional development, physical development and creativity.
The learning approach is the PLAN–DO–REVIEW sequence in which children make choices, carry out their ideas and reflect on what they have learnt. These activities promote initiative and independence. In addition, children engage in group activities, socialize during meals, develop self-care skills and exercise large muscles during outdoor time.
The curriculum philosophy is based on 5 fundamental beliefs that are strongly supported by theoretical and empirical research.
- Constructive and purposeful play is the best vehicle for meaningful learning
- Development of social competence is a key focus of early years
- Relationships are the key foundation for learning
- Curriculum Assessment should be Integrated
- Families are essential partners in child’s learning
We believe that, learning can be fun once its simplicity is understood from the perspective of a child. Curiosity, excitement and unlimited energy are all part of learning and growing at Cubby Tales.
