At Papagoya, we approach Early Childhood Education through play-based learning and create meaningful play experiences through the day for children. We believe that they learn about the world around them best, through the medium of play. We see children as born learners who crave new experiences, challenges and environments.
Active outdoor play is vital to a child and core to our philosophy. We believe that nature is a child’s best teacher and the outdoors provide children a stress-free environment, and also allows them to use their whole bodies to grow confident, and learn.
Play also allows children to practice concentration, be creative, experience friendship, take responsibility & initiative, experience adversity & small losses, and be communicative. Using play as our medium, we are guided by 7 core learning areas that ensure that children are exposed to a holistic set of experiences and opportunities.
- Communication and Language
- Body, Movement and Health
- Art, Culture and Creativity
- Nature, Environment and Technology
- Ethics and Philosophy
- Local Community and Society
- Numbers, Spaces and Shapes
