At Eden we are inspired by the approach of the schools of Reggio Emilia, Italy. Children and adults work with the Studio Teacher and/or Class Teacher to experience creative, project-based teaching and learning, researching in multiple curriculum areas, giving teaching and learning context and meaning.

We want children to be viewed as capable and active in their learning, gaining confidence and enjoyment from their experiences. Their ideas and voices are heard and explored, giving them agency and understanding about their learning. Teachers are active in giving children this agency and understanding through questions, observations, provocations and documentation. We aim for the use of creative skills and creative knowledge to support learning across the entire curriculum and to ensure that our curriculum is accessible to and inclusive of every child.

Our creativity curriculum focuses on a progression of development of the ‘100 creative languages’ children have. All children are engaged because they are challenged by their involvement in the project.

Our intention is that creativity builds resilience, problem solving and research skills in both children and adults. Collaboration is developed, and cross curricular learning occurs to engage children and enrich their experiences in school.
