Implementing an Emergent, Child-led Planning System

Programme Introduction

An emergent approach is a method of providing curriculum that recognises and responds to children’s interests and needs as they develop. As a result of close adult observation of the child’s behaviour and play - the child’s ‘voice’ is included in the planned curriculum response.

The ‘Implementing an Emergent Child-led Planning System’ programme is about creating a streamlined system. The aim is to outline a streamlined and effective system that will enable educators to plan for children’s emerging interests and needs and make their 'voice' visible.

This programme is an extension of the Mosaic programme ‘Planning for Emergent Curriculum’ and ‘Creating Learning Stories’ and puts a particular emphasis on including the voice of the child in the emergent planning process.  

The Resource Documents section contains printable handouts to support the programme content and a Certificate of Participation is saved to the educator profile on completion.

It starts with where the child is now, not with what is absent, and highlights where the child can go with additional support.
