At Childgarden Preschool the role of the teacher is that of a collaborator with the children. The teacher’s role is to set up a classroom environment that is interesting for the children and provokes discussions and questions. The constant observations of the teachers are a very important part of developing the curriculum. Analyzing conversations, and questions of the children, photos and video, provide the teachers with information about what the children are interested in learning or exploring. What do they have questions about? What are their theories? This is the basis for projects that the children will explore which will last as long as the interest is sustained. This could be a few days, weeks, or months. The teacher’s role will be to break down a topic into simple questions, and have the children explore. The curriculum is built upon and extended so that the learning is deep, relevant and meaningful. The teachers look for ways a topic can be extended in the classroom in other ways such as art, by painting, drawing, clay representation, collage or drama, music, books, and photos. Literacy, science, socials, math, and art intertwine as a topic is explored, captivating the children, as these are topics that they interested in, and not chosen by teachers because of a calendar or convenience.
