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 ‘Child-led Emergent Planning’ 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.
The programme contains 3 components as follows:
Component 1: Overview of the Child-led Emergent Approach
Component 2: Emergent Planning
Component 3: The Planning Cycle
This programme is an extension of the Mosaic programme ‘Emergent Curriculum’, ‘Creating Learning Stories’ and 'Seeing Voices' 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.
