We use the New Brunswick Curriculum Framework for Early Learning and Child Care - English to plan curriculum. We develop curriculum out of the interests, passions, and strengths of children, their families, and teachers, as well as seasonal and cultural events. Our classroom is a flexible environment where playful exploration, problem solving, and creativity are encouraged and purposely planned. Children's literacies and literate identities are valued and supported. We believe that children are active learners who are influenced by their relationships We take care to cultivate responsive relationships.
