Our programs are carefully planned to align with children's goals, which provides healthy ideas about how our educators, families and communities can work together to reach the children's goals.
Eh to Zed Preschool Canada team refers to the pedagogical directions and examples of program planning to help the children reach their goals. Our educators become researchers and co-learners with children, parents and colleagues.
Preschool Canada embeds the following documents into their everyday program;
> How Does Learning Happen
> Think, Feel, Act
Our educators understand how to implement the four foundations from How Does Learning Happen document. Our qualified educators include these core foundations into our classroom every day as the expectations for programs provide pedagogical for our team as they:
- Cultivate authentic, caring relationships and connections to create a sense of belonging among and between children, adults, and the world around them.
- Nurture children's healthy development and support their growing sense of self.
- Provide environments and experiences to engage children in active, creative, and meaningful exploration, play, and inquiry.
- Foster communication and expression in all forms.
Our educators listen, observe, document and discuss with families to create contexts to support children's learning, development, health, and well-being
Our educators use assessment tools approved by their regions to support the children's learnings, such as; Looksee Checklist, Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ),and the ERIC. Our educators and families work side-by-side to help the children meet their development skills. The government supports us with different services in the regions, such as Early Intervention Services and Early Years Resource Consultant.
Our team involves themselves in a constant inquiry into what they believe, which will make their journey to understand the children better and better all the time.
