LEARNING SPACES

Creating and maintaining high quality learning environments is an essential element of our practice.

Questions to Ponder:

  • How does your environment reflect Christ -centred education?
  • How does your environment contribute to a sense of belonging for children,whanau and staff?
  • How do provocations extend children’s thinking, curiosity and sense of awe and wonder?
  • How does your environment reflect current pedagogy and practice?

If you are interested in further information around environments contact the NCO about the resources we have available.
