Engage Minds Learning is thrilled to inform you that we have begun our work towards Curiosity Approach accreditation and that from January 2019 we will be adding new philosophies to our learning environment. We are the first centre to take up the Curiosity Approach Accreditation and a proud one to work towards such high standards.
Curiosity Approach originates from the UK and is based on four philosophies which together aim at creating an environment of wonder and inquisitive moments for young children but also aims to empower and ignite passion and excitement in practitioners giving them the tools and knowledge to enable them and the learning setting to create beautiful play spaces for children. You will be able to find information of the four philosophies further down below:
There accreditation will take us 12 months to complete. We will be undergoing quite a few changes from opening some of the learning classrooms to form open learning spaces, to changes in the learning environments by creating wonder and curious activities and provocations to learning to changes among our teachers. There will no longer be teachers assigned to groups of children instead focus children will be observed by all staff and learning will happen across the setting. Data collection will help us keep the progress of the child at fingertips.
We are aware that the children will be going into mainstream schools from the age of 6 ( the legal requirement with MOE) and so our target is to maintain the literacy and numeracy at our highest standards and have the children read well by the time they leave us , have a strong numeracy foundation but also be confident, curious and creative.
