What makes us special?
At Elles Belles Early Learning we are reimagining education to empower children to thrive in and build the world of the future. Our world is changing faster than ever before, and our children will live vastly different lives than the ones we know today. For our children to thrive and for human civilization to flourish in this new era, Elles Belles Early Learning recognises the importance for the need to reimagine education. At Elles Belles Early Learning we acknowledge that every child is a whole human being, we cultivate a balance of character strengths and inquisitive minds, we are driven by this and therefore aspire to ensure that our children from 0 – 6 years leave our service equip with all the necessary foundation, for their future.
The Elles Belles Early Learning Curriculum is built upon 4 essential pillars these are:
- The Whole (Holistic) Child: Children are naturally curious being and ones who are filled with wonder. At EllesBelles Early Learning we believe by fostering children’s individualism we are equipping children vital toolkits which work towards increasing their confidence and the way they build and sustain long term relationships with others.
- The Natural Environment: Creating activities and organic play spaces for all children to independently or collaboratively explore and wonder. We believe children begin to show appreciation and concern for natural environments when they have a greater awareness of living things.
- The Scaffolding Elles Belles Early Learning Educators: We believe our highly experienced educators play an imperative role as scaffolders. This means we want our children to think for themselves, share ideas and learn with guidance rather than force.
- Identity Psychology (Real World & Purpose): Enabling all children countless opportunities to develop their knowledge of the world they live in whilst, fostering their learning and understanding of cultural and social contents within their families and local communities. We believe in providing children with rich social environments that have a positive impact on their learning.
The Elles Belles Early Learning Way
Alongside with our unique curriculum, we have also ensured that we develop a very tailored approach with regard to how we record and collect our data from our children’s learning and development. We believe in the importance of critical reflection and ask ourselves “How does learning happen”? and “What can we do to make it better”?
At Elles Belles Early Learning we value the information which we retrieve from our families. We recognise that the essential role a child’s family plays in their world, especially as they are the first and most powerful influence on children’s learning, development, health and well – being. We acknowledge that our families bring diverse social, cultural, and linguistic perspectives, therefore we aspire for our families to feel a sense of belonging and are valuable contributors to their children’s learning in a meaningful way. This is how the Elles Belle programming model came to life and with this model, our educators utilise these four essential areas into their weekly programs to ensure we invest in ‘the whole’ child.
