How Does Learning Happen? (HDLH)

HDLH is a professional learning resource for educators and administrators who work with young children and their families. The main areas of HDLH intend to guide the program development, pedagogy and practise include;

  • A view of children as competent and capable of complex thinking, curious and rich in potential
  • Goals for children; organized around belonging, well-being, engagement and expression
  • The “How” for working toward the goals of children;
    • Responsive relationships
    • Learning through exploration, play and inquire
    • Educators are co-learners
    • Environment as third teacher
    • Pedagogy documentation
    • Reflective, practise and collaborative inquire

Our principle is to focus on many different developments that will help your child explore their Physical, Cognitive, Emotional and Social Skills. This is based on a program that is defined as E.L.E.C.T (Early Learning for Every Child Today) an advanced curriculum that helps support the children who are in a child care setting and provide them with the best learning skills for their future.
