This is a foundational topic and will give you the skills and knowledge required to promote and encourage children’s agency. Let’s start off by learning about the different theories and/or approaches about childhood learning.
This approach concentrates on recording, documenting and responding to what happens throughout the day rather than predetermined planning. It is a very interest-based curriculum that builds upon and responds to children’s skills, abilities, interests, knowledge and children’s social relationships and interactions. As an Educator, you are encouraged to create provocations to appeal to children, capture their curiosity and interest and create new learning opportunities. Emergent curriculum allows you to respond to spontaneous or unexpected events. Under this approach children are viewed as capable and that new skills and knowledge will emerge from their interactions with others and as theywork on areas or investigations of interest.
An Emergent Curriculum emphasises the process of learning rather than the product. It involves:
• Areas well stocked with materials that can be utilised in a variety of ideas and interests (e.g. different areas for science, creative, natural, technology, etc.)
• Materials offered to children in inviting ways which encourage creativity and self-selection(e.g. open baskets, containers, art and craft trolley)
• Flexible routines, which are relaxed and unhurried
• Children involved in the setup of the day’s learning experiences
