Building a Curriculum Based on Childrens Play
At Tiny Stars Infant and Toddler Care, Our curriculum is based on “Play” And yes, we know how this sounds!
The way that the classroom is set up, determines how the children will decide to play in their surroundings. By setting up the classroom with items that are related to that weeks curriculum, she is structuring the environment for learning. It can determine how, and with what and where the children go. The teacher then engages with the child in their surroundings, and then the teacher also engages in “play”.
The Curriculum is the basis for the items that the teacher chooses to set up the room with. The Theme is carried out in the things that the children decide to play with! The teacher sets up the environment based on what the theme is for that particular day or week.
