In Butterflies we incorporate ‘In the Moment’ planning to ensure the children’s learning and interests are at the heart of what we do. Our aim is to support your child in becoming more confident, independent and engaged in their learning. We will plan and teach, treating each child as an individual and allowing them to achieve their best.
‘In the Moment’ allows child initiated learning through play, based on capturing the interests of the children through personalised learning. We take into consideration the children’s interests to create meaningful educational experiences through providing an enabling environment, using quality interactions and ‘teachable moments’. So far we have taken on the interests of Snowflakes and Santa’s helpers.
Teachable moments are about recognising that young children often learn in a more informal and creative way. Within this style of teaching, we are looking for opportunities to allow learning to take place through child initiated play alongside providing challenge and open ended questioning when needed.
What will we do?
- We will provide an environment and opportunities that stimulate curiosity and challenge thinking.
- We will observe and listen closely to the children’s play.
- We will create environments that will spark the children’s interest.
- We will praise and reinforce positive learning experiences.
