Why Wonder Years School

We believe "Play" is the foundation for all learning. Through play, we inculcate in children a lifelong love of learning laying the foundation for academic excellence in the years to come.

We believe in providing an environment where the health and well being of all children is protected and nurtured, where they build a sense of belonging, a sense of community and confidence to imagine, investigate, experiment and problem solve. Our teachers create a play based curriculum using an emergent approach keeping the child’s interest at the core and providing experiences which cultivates the joy of learning.

Relationships are at the heart of our pedagogy. We believe teacher- child relationships play a vital role in the learning and development of children in our care. Therefore, we build strong positive relationships with children and their families. Children will learn and develop holistically when they feel safe and have a trusting, secure and responsive relationship with the teacher and their peers.

We believe each child is competent and unique with an innate quality to learn and discover. Children have different ways of learning and understanding new information. Therefore, we provide a play based curriculum with plenty of opportunities for the child to choose from and teachers actively responding to each child’s aspirations, strengths, interests and abilities in order to meet the needs of all children.
