Our image of a child

We view children as competent and capable citizens, assisting to develop autonomy, confidence, self-esteem, self-regulation, self-assessment and the active participation in their learning. It also influences the way we describe children and their learning to each other and families.

We use our image of a child to support:

  • the words we use and how they look like in practice
  • our structure of the environment
  • the kinds of questions we ask
  • presentation of learning experiences
  • the decisions about our ‘curriculum’
  • children’s role in their own learning
  • adult’s role in children’s learning
  • sharing our teaching and learning through documentation

Planning for the possible: a unique inquiry curriculum for educators and children

At Harmony, we take a unique inquiry approach to our work with and alongside children. Our Visiting Head of Curriculum, Professor Deborah Harcourt, has worked alongside our team of talented Educational Leaders to develop a teaching and learning framework for planning which responds to contemporary research in early childhood education and care.
