Our programs are based on the fact that the most important years of a child’s brain development and learning patterns occur from infancy to age five. Our curriculum and methodology take advantage of the windows of opportunity in these years to give your child the best start toward a lifetime of learning.
Based on the principles of the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF), and the concept of ‘emergent curriculum’, Greenwood have designed your children’s program with a focus on the 5 key learning outcomes:
1. Children have a strong sense of identity
2. Children are connected with and contribute to their world
3. Children have a strong sense of wellbeing
4. Children are confident and involved learners
5. Children are effective communicators.
The 5 Learning Outcomes are designed to capture the integrated and complex learning and development of all children across the early childhood age group range.
How does it work?
The Greenwood Curriculum has been designed similar to how a bee creates honeycomb.
In the Greenwood Curriculum the children play the roles of the bee. It’s the bees that determine what shape the honeycomb will take, along with a set curriculum determined by Greenwood.
Children are the key decision makers at Greenwood. The Curriculum encourages them to use their initiative, plan, reflect and problem solve.
