ABOUT RED HILL KINDERGARTEN
THE PHYSICAL ENVIRONMENT AT RED HILL KINDERGARTEN
We start each week with our indoor environment set up as a 'blank slate'.
This is in line with our core educational goal that relates to children following their own interests and interest areas. We believe that children have their own interests and are aware of stifling the expression of these interests via the way we set up our environments, both indoors and outdoors.
Through the careful and considered use of open ended materials and resources, we are able to support children's learning via their own interest areas, thus providing us (the teachers) with a platform from which to scaffold skills and processes.
This platform then speaks directly to our intentional teaching. When one views the pre prep group as a learning community, you can then view each of the members of that learning community as rich and strong contributors. We view the children as being the suppliers of the content for programs.
The children's interests and knowledge bases make up the content of our programs. The teacher's intentionality directly relates to the scaffolding of the skills and processes outlined in the current curriculums, Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines and Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF).
