Image of the Child

Projects and Investigations challenge the more traditional methods of teaching and learning.  They are founded on an image of the child who is strong and competent, rich with ideas and resources, curious about the world around them and capable of constructing their own knowledge and understandings.

Whilst most traditional methods of teaching and learning focus on the transmission of the knowledge from the ‘teacher’ to the ‘learner’, projects and investigations value children as true researchers who possess their own theories and are active participants in their own learning – which becomes visible over time.
