Physical movement essential for pre-schoolers development
and home-grown for the growing minds of pre-schoolers.
The strength of the RIE programme lies in each under two and a half year old having a specific teacher as their support, guide and teacher.
This allows a strong bond of trust to form that has been shown to greatly benefit the development of the child.
The Reggio programme steps in when the children are older than two and a half, and picks up children’s interests and runs childlead learning scenarios that are all tied back to the curriculum.
‘‘The physical movement programme is a great example of utilising specialist knowledge for the benefit of our students. Finding these opportunities is just part of what we do here – I’m totally passionate about it. Seeing the students ready to go off to school is really inspirational,’’ Fran says.
