    Sample Video from our Teachers Aide (Advanced) course PLUS an extract from the topic - Promote Children Agency.

    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.

    Emergent Curriculum
    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

    • Educators who capture teachable moments (intentional teaching) ask questions to stimulate conversations and offer guidance and suggestions

    Reggio Emelia Method (Loris Malaguzzi)
    During the last ten years, this approach has begun to influence a large number of early childhood services and practices. The approach is named after the province in Italy where it was founded and does not refer to the philosopher’s name. After the World War II, the community of Reggio Emilia came together to rebuild the schools and were guided by Loris Malaguzzi whose vision was to create settings where children would learn, create, grow, collaborate, revisit experiences and reflect on them, where all—including children, families, educators and community—felt a sense of belonging. Malaguzzi strived to make children’s learning visible not only to them but toothers. He believed that children were capable and constructed their knowledge and understanding through explorations, collaborating with others and continually revisiting and reflecting. The term, ‘One hundred languages of children’ is a phrase that Malaguzzi used to remind us that children communicate in a wide variety ofways. With the Reggio Emilia approach, there are six essential areas:
    1. Parental involvement
    2. Environment
    3. Role of teachers
    4. Curriculum
    5. Project work
    6. Documentation
    For more information on this method refer to the supplementary learning resources in this course.

    Montessori Approach (Maria Montessori)
    The Montessori approach was developed over 100 years ago in Italy by Maria Montessori. Her vision for childhood had a welcoming, ordered environment that provided children with a sense of predictability and security. It also included children taking part in ‘children’s work’ with specifically designed equipment for a specific purpose. This includes goal-orientated activity rather than play. There are many Montessori services in Australia, and many of which require Educators to have additional qualifications or courses in the Montessori Method alongside their Children’s Services Qualification for employment. For more information on this methodrefer to the supplementary learning resources in this course.

    Rudolph Steiner/Waldorf
    The work and approach by Rudolph Steiner have been referred to as ‘Steiner Schools’ or the ‘Waldorf system of education’ and these terms are used interchangeably. Steiner was an Austrian Philosopher and was very interested in the development of the ‘whole child and a balance between children’s artistic, academic, practical and spiritual needs. Entering a Steiner classroom, you will notice a focus on the use of natural materials rather than plastic and other manufactured items. There is also an emphasis on the use of creativity, storytelling, puppetry, drama, music, gardening, drawing and painting. For more information on this method refer to the supplementary learning resources in this course.
