Emergent Curriculum In The Classroom
We plan our curriculum according to the Emergent Curriculum. This means that we follow the children's lead when planning and setting up each classroom. This is done through daily observations of the children and interactions between the children and educator. Through these observations we make decisions on what will happen next and what will best motivate the children's learning. We will then follow the children's lead by introducing new and exciting activities to expand their interests and learning.
Parents and Educators
Parents are a vital component to Emergent Curriculum; they are viewed as partners, collaborators, and advocates for their children. Educators respect parents as each child's first teacher and involve parents in every aspect of the curriculum.
Educators are encouraged to facilitate the child's learning by planning activities and lessons based on the child's interests. The educators document observations of developmental abilities, and interests on a regular basis. Parents are also invited to document observations that they see at home.
"ELECT" Early Learning for Every Child Today was put together by an expert panel for Early Childhood Education in the Province of Ontario.
