February 2012. Extracted from the report: “Children learn and play in a calm and settled environment. They have easy access to well-organised equipment and resources and are able to choose activities they are interested in. Throughout the day, children participate in structured learning times as well as periods of free choice. Teachers and children exhibit mutually respectful relationships and interactions. Teachers encourage children’s independence and respect for the environment and others. They expect that if these values and attributes are well embedded, the children will carry them throughout their lives. Teachers support, but do not unnecessarily interfere, with children’s efforts as they learn to take responsibility for life skills. Parent’s contributions to children’s learning are highly valued. The expertise of parents and locals is used to extend and enrich children learnings. Parents enjoy the social aspect of the centre.”
