Te Whaariki (the curriculum)
At Folkestone St Child Care we offer choices for children in all curriculum areas, ranging from art, sensory, dramatic play, social skills and indoor/ outdoor activities including the supporting of developing fine & gross motor skills.
By focusing on the individual child through observation and interactions, we aim to maximise your Child's learning and development in the early childhood setting. This is enhanced by our focus on developing strong relationships with our families, therefore understanding your Child's level of development on a more personal level.
We notice what your child enjoys and shows an interest in, and recognise this by extending that interest through a variety of planned and spontaneous experiences to enhance your child's learning and development.
You will see a range of learning opportunities documented throughout our centre including display boards with your child's creations, including photos and art work that relate to the current interests of the children.
Our program is designed to ensure our children’s' learning and development is maximised through exploration while having an enjoyable and fun experience at our centre.
