At Panda, the central focus is the child. Children are intelligent, knowledgeable, curious and love to explore. Only they know what interests them. At Panda, we listen, observe and respond. The Panda experience is shaped by these five roles played by the child.
The interest and needs of the child define the type and range of support offered. A range of strategies is used to learn more about the child. This includes asking the child, observing them and collaborating with parents.
Each child has the capacity to decide on what activities suit them. We defer to their greater judgement and this helps in building their independence and thinking process.
All activities desired and chosen by the child is then planned for the child. This may be ensuring the range of equipment and space is available, clean and usable. Documenting the experiences of the child helps plot their progress.
Social and interaction skills are learnt from being with others, sharing, communicating and observing. Such opportunities occur spontaneously or via intentional teaching.
Children have immense capacity to learn from their environment. Where positive influences and a depth of experiences are made available, the child benefits greatly. Their growth is all too visible and pleasurable.
