At Treehouse Early Learning Centre, we connect care with education by following the Early Years Learning Framework ( EYLF ) Belonging, Being and Becoming. Allowing our team members to carry out regular observations of every child, ensuring that their learning and development incorporates their interests and needs.
Motivated by the educational philosophies of Reggio Emilia, the Treehouse Early Learning Centre approach focuses on:
Reggio Emilia Philosophy is an innovative and inspirational approach to early childhood education, which recognises the child as strong, competent and resilient; loaded with interest and consciousness. The Reggio Emilia Philosophy explores and looks to light the primary interest of children and aims to help them with learning about their world and who they are in it. Parents started Reggio Emilia in Reggio Emilia, Italy after World War II; the parents concluded a new approach to teaching their children was required.
The program they developed stressed esteem, duty and community engagement. Children are empowered to investigate and explore in a supportive and vibrant environment, where the curriculum is built around the children’s interests. It is essential to understand that the Reggio Emilia philosophy is simply that – a philosophy.
The Treehouse Early Learning Centre is guided by the philosophy and is not ‘Reggio Emilia accredited’ as there is no formal process for this. The philosophy simply manages the decisions of teachers and educators in how they approach education.
