At Young Risers children's learning is best inspired through thoughtful play and exploration.
We strive to provide a safe and nurturing eviornment based on guidance and facilitation of our children's interests.
We implement curriculums and materials in the classroom that expand and contextualize these ideas by keeping our children engaged in activities that encourage inspirational approaches and conversations.
We follow an emergent curriculum deriving from the Reggio Approach. The Reggio Approach is an inevitable contribution to the child as a whole. The child is categorized as a respectful citizen in the community. As per Malaguzi, the child holds 100 languages of learning, thinking and playing.
Young Risers educators implement the approach by allowing the children the opportunity to play with materials and explore them in their own way. As educators, we must embrace the uniqueness of each individual child and nourish their developmental growth as a whole within our classroom community. We look for a common thread or theme that sparks interest in a group of children and evoke provocative areas in the classroom.
Documentation is an integral practice at Young Risers. It takes center stage, as it visibly displays the thinking and learning process of the child. Teachers reflect on this process by observing, recording conversations, taking photographs and collecting work of the children. Our teachers meet to analyze and question children's work, purpose and reason for play. Our educators are 'Observers of Children'. It is a continual daily practice.
