Investigations

Our Investigations program is aimed at students in the early years of school. The program uses a mix of active hands-on exploration and project based work, alongside group times, personal reflection times and other learning experiences provided by the school. The program is based on the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework and Kathy Walker’s Development Curriculum.

 

Students participate in two to three sessions per week in the afternoon. Theme work and the students' interests and are used as the motivations for investigations. The nature of the experiences for the children promotes creativity, imagination and scope for the child to invent, explore and learn. The program is extremely valuable in that is supports the Literacy and Numeracy learning that the children are also doing.
