Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Play is the work of young children ! It is messy, unpredictable, spontaneous, freewheeling and sometimes even a little scary. In other words, PLAY, is a lot like life

At the Little Red Playschool we place equal emphasis upon the social, physical, emotional and intellectual aspects of a child's pre-school experience and therefore value the development of the whole child.

Play is practice in choosing, doing, and problem solving. When children play, they are thinking, innovating, negotiating and taking risks. They create make-believe events and practice physical, social, and cognitive skills as they engage in these events as if they were real. Teachers support play by providing a variety of things to do, observing what unfolds, and staying nearby to help as needed and to acknowledge children's actions and words."
