The implementation of a Developmental Curriculum in the Prep Year has stemmed from the recognition of the need to give our children the opportunity to develop their oral language skills, engage all children (particularly the boys) in their early learning, to extend their social skills and motivation to learn.
The developmental curriculum places emphasis on the child’s oral language, cognitive, physical, social and emotional development.
- places the child at the centre of the curriculum
- encourages active engagement by all children
- provides children with opportunities to explore processes rather than just end products, understanding that mistakes are part of learning.
