Embracing a CAPS, Child-led, Inquiry-based, and Reggio Inspired approach
As creative and curious individuals, with multiple capabilities and intelligences, every child at our school is an active participant in their own learning. Our staff’s knowledge, ability to identify, and understanding of how to apply the South African National Curriculum and Assessment Policy Statements (CAPS), combined with a child-led, inquiry-based, and Reggio Inspired approach to learning, means we’re able to teach from a curriculum rather than to it.
”We teachers must see ourselves as researchers, able to think, and produce a true curriculum, a curriculum produced from all of the children”Malaguzzi (1993 p.4).
