Early Learning Centre (ELC)

 

In February 2018 we opened our $5.5 million dollar ELC. This is a purpose built Reggio Emilia inspired learning centre to cater especially for our children aged from 0 to 6 years of age.

 

The building and nature based play spaces are the first of its kind in Tasmania and was designed with input from children their families and our staff. Our ELC is part of our approach to reimagine teaching in the early years at our school and be inspired by play based inquiry. We are one of the first 13 action research schools in Tasmania to work with the Early Years Team with the department of education in this space.

 

Our work in our ELC is constantly evolving alongside our other pods utilising our data wise inquiry process of continuous school improvement. In the ELC it is about blending the notion of student led provocations to learning with our explicit approaches to teaching. We believe that you can do both and you can do it through the lens of inquiry through play based learning.
