Our play-based curriculum caters to each child's needs
The Purple Penguin Crèche uses an Emergent Curriculum. The Emergent Curriculum is a non traditional style of teaching that presents children with the gift of discovering the world around them by encouraging them to explore life through their own interests and passions.
It is “child lead” learning as opposed to “teacher directed” learning. For the Emerging Curriculum to work successfully within our service it requires creativity, flexibility, observation, documentation and patience.
The role of the childcare practitioner is to be a “co learner” instead of “head teachers” .We believes we must show a genuine openness to the children’s interests and ideas. We must follow the lead of the children and the practitioners can then create a stimulating environment with hope to further each individual child’s exploration and learning on certain topics.
Our objectives is to nurture positive social skill, encourage creative problem solving, support the developmental growth of the children and build a solid foundation from which children can stand on during life.
We have an Inclusion Co-Ordinator whose role it is to provide leadership in relation to issues of Diversity, Equality and Inclusion. More information can be found on the AIM website
