Our baby playgroup is guided by ‘continuous provision’ and the philosophy of RIE (Magda Gerber) and active learning based on the HighScope developmental indicators. Continuous provision allows children to explore recent learning, practice new skills, and follow their own interests.
The RIE approach to care giving places the child at the centre of all actions and adults are responsive to children's needs. During care activities (changing, feeding, etc.), adults create opportunities for interaction, cooperation, respectful relationships and mutual enjoyment. Adults create a safe, challenging and predictable environment. The more predictable an environment is, the easier it is for infants to learn. Adults give infants plenty of time for uninterrupted play, exploration and discovery.
