A Love for Learning

What I Learn at the Treasure Cove…
I learn through play…

Firstly

I learn to be away from my family, this may take some time, that’s why the teachers like us to visit before I am left by myself.

I learn to listen to my teachers and other adults.

I learn to work with large and small groups of children.

I learn to work alone.

I learn to share and co-operate.

I learn about rituals and routines.

I learn how to  set goals and challenge myself.

I learn about the way my body moves through dance, drama and active movement.

I learn to question and answer.

I learn to be independent but know I can still ask for help.

I learn to make choices and decisions.

I learn to share my experiences with others.

I learn about the world around me by

Exploring to find out what things are called.

Exploring to find out how things work.

I explore the concepts of thinking, reasoning and questioning.

 

Exploring through my senses feel, smell, taste, look and sound.

I learn to value and appreciate the bi cultural heritage of Aotearoa.
I learn to celebrate culture and diversity.
I learn and discover so much through getting out and about and exploring my local community.

Before I learn to write and read I need to

Know what happens when I put pencils or paint on paper.

Be able to hold a pencil or brush correctly.

Have time to scribble, draw circles and make shapes before I am able to draw things or make letters.

Enjoy drawing and painting in order to learn to read or write.

Learn about letters and words – how they are formed and what order
they go in.

I need your praise and encouragement even though you may not know what I have drawn or written.

Remember I learn at my own pace,
this may be slower or faster than others.
I am UNIQUE….

 

The Treasure Cove Early Learning Centre has lots of different experiences and opportunities for me to discover and explore, so next time you pick me up, remember that I have had a busy day playing and learning.
