Emergent Curriculum:

IMG_0813Children between the ages of one and five do not learn because they are taught. They learn as a result of their own doing…through actions, relationships, inquiries, opportunities, and repetition. This knowledge is the foundation of the emergent curriculum.

CHILDREN LEARN WHEN THEY: run, socialize, paint, throw, question, rhyme, jump read, catch, climb, scream, create, dress up, listen, observe, pull, shape, speak, swing, push, and much more…

The most important goal with emergent curriculum is to inspire delight, curiosity, and inquiry in the classroom. Doing so has been proven to build intrinsic motivation (coming from within the child) and a long-term love of learning. These are the greatest gifts our teachers can give a child in preparation for their primary school experience.
