Child led learning: the perfect way to spend a dayMay 9, 2018 10:57 am Comments Off on Child led learning: the perfect way to spend a day
Our stunning building and beautiful garden provide a wonderful environment but they are not there just to look pretty! This environment is a vital tool that our team can use to enable the children. We believe that their imaginations are the richest resource that we have and that they should be enabled to follow their own interests through play assisted by capable, knowledgeable professionals who can expand and extend their learning. This means that we provide the children with open ended resources, items that are not prescriptive to play but that children can adapt to perform any number of functions depending on their area of interest at that time. A box can become a treasure chest, add some treasure, bury it in the sand, make a map, sing a song about adventure, discuss the desert island your treasure chest is buried on; what’s the weather like there? what type of animals might live there? Suddenly, from a simple box mixed with the rich imagination of a small child, you have a whole adventure, learning about the natural world, mark making and creative arts, role play and singing. At the Mulberry Bush that is a perfect way to spend the day!
