Come & Explore (0 – 6 years)
During early childhood, children learn how to learn. Children construct knowledge through physical activity, social interactions with others and their own active thinking. Children practice the tools of learning: how to plan, monitor, revise, reflect, investigate and solve problems: and to see and exchange points of view with others. Through observation and action, children form their own hypotheses, try them out, find out what happens and formulate their own answers. Children develop learning strategies from first-hand actions with objects in their world and from exchanging points of view with peers and adults. ELECT pg. 15
