Where learning comes alive

Limited places available KRB 4 year old programs 2018: Joigny Term Time and Sophie’s Long Day Care. Now interviewing for 2019. Please check siblings’ applications and inform friends. 

Eager explorers and thinkers thrive at KRB’s ELC where there’s a place for discovery, adventure and curiosity. The children at the ELC marvel at ‘life’, delight in the real and the imagined and engage hands on with nature and the ’wild’. Inspired by authentic interests the children are actively encouraged to wonder, dream, invent, enquire and question. They investigate and delve deeply into challenging and thought provoking issues and problems discovered in the world around them. Whether it is tackling the problem of plastic in the ocean, exploring the intricacies of the brain or tracking unseen foxes through their wild space the children are focussed and excited as they share their ideas, theories and solutions.

Inspired by philosophies from Reggio Emilia and the Scandinavian Forest Schools the children that attend KRB’s ELC grow in both heart and mind to develop into dynamic, adventurous, engaging young people who are curious, inquisitive and socially aware. Come along to a KRB Information Morning and see the wonder for yourself – and invite a friend!

Our philosophy

Our work with our youngest members of the school in KRB's Early Learning Centre is inspired by the educators from Reggio Emilia.

We believe that children learn best through hands-on exploration.  They have strong ideas and theories about their world and seek to acquire new skills and knowledge through meaningful social relationships.

We nurture your child's discovery and learning by supporting their individual interests.

Learning through investigation

Working in small groups, KRB encourages your child to engage deeply in ideas that interest and excite them.

Teachers and children research and build knowledge together.  Investigations may start from a chance event, a simple idea, a posed problem or an experience initiated by a teacher.

Planning and procedures

Our planning and procedures grow from:

  • Listening closely to our children
  • Observing behaviours and social interactions
  • Posing questions and ideas
  • Recognising opportunities for discovery and learning

* The School reserves the right to update and change the School Admissions Policy
