Our Commitment to providing child focused learning

Our play based early learning curriculum is child-centred and is inspired by the Reggio Emilia belief that children are the main initiators in their learning. Our knowledgeable Educators are dedicated to create exciting learning opportunities that reflect and respond to your child’s individual needs. Our learning programmes are not planned months in advance, they emerge on a daily basis, building on your child’s current interests and using the Early Years Learning Framework as a strong basis for children's development we value and recognise your child’s ideas, interests and strengths, planning play experiences that allow your child the opportunity to guide their own learning.

“Play is the highest form of research” Albert Einstein

The Early Years Learning Framework describes childhood as a time of belonging, being and becoming.

  • Belonging is the foundation for living a fulfilling life. Children feel they belong through their relationships with their family, culture, community and place. We cherish our role as your extended family and a part of your child’s community.
  • Being recognises the importance of the here and now. Our curriculum reflects the value we place on early childhood, a time to simply ‘be’; to play, investigate and enjoy an unhurried time to pursue their own interests.
  • Becoming is about the wonderful learning and development that young children experience. We recognise the knowledge, understanding, identity, skills and potential that your child brings with them to Starbright.

To maximise the learning opportunities for each child, our curriculum is designed to be fun! Our learning environments are carefully planned to inspire curiosity, a feeling of wanting to explore and to discover. Together with their peers, we celebrate your child’s efforts, their achievements, their struggles and their perseverance.

Our indoor and outdoor environments provide your child with a wide range of experiences that develop positive relationships and effective communications. Our engaging learning spaces stimulate the senses, invite exploration and discovery and challenge children as active learners. We encourage the children to connect with nature inside and out.

"Enabling environments mobilise the energy, attention,

curiosity and focus of children" Howard Gardner

Young children use many different ways to demonstrate their understanding of the world and share their thoughts and creativity through different opportunities for expression. We value and celebrate every child’s way of thinking, discovering and learning and our passionate educators use Reggio Emilia's approach of the 100 languages to provide oportunitires for children to communicate through a vareity of methods, including drawing and sculpting, dance and movement, painting and role-play, modelling and music, bring all language opportunities into your child’s development.

"The child is made of one hundred

The child has;

a hundred languages

a hundred hands

a hundred thoughts

a hundred ways of thinking

of playing of speaking"
