The Early Learning Centre (ELC) aims to provide a warm, secure and stimulating preschool environment for children aged 3-5. Using the Australian Early Years Learning Framework and the Reggio Emilia Philosophy, students are exposed to a variety of learning experiences.
The Reggio Emilia Approach presupposes that a child’s personality is formed during the early stages of childhood. AISM encourages children to express themselves through their ‘100 languages’, and build relationships with the community as well as the environment around them.
The approach focuses on child-centred, inquiry based learning, where children learn through real life and hands-on experiences. Learners are given rich opportunities to explore, discover and construct knowledge through many different modes of learning to deepen their own understanding.
Each child’s learning is documented every step of the way, shared daily through digital means and classroom displays. AISM aims to create ‘meaningful conversations’ between the child, the parent and the teacher. By doing this, a valuable learning link between school and home is provided, supporting their growth as lifelong learners.
