Learning opportunities from play

Topcare Quality Early Childhood Education Learning

Opportunities to strengthen learning opportunities happen throughout the day at our centre. Strengthening learning opportunities are planned by the teachers from the child’s or group of children’s interests. As the teachers work alongside the children. They listen to their language or observe what they are doing. They will often record the discussions they have with them. The programme is then developed from these discussions and observation.
