We believe in nurturing independent, resourceful little learners. An importance is placed on listening to children and following their interests within the environment. ‘Imagination is the foundation for learning.’ Our staff believe in the importance of process over product, particularly when children are exploring tailored messy and creative activities.
“Play is the work of the child.”
At Go Far we have infused the work of several different theorists such as Reggio, Montessori and Steiner, along with some added Go Far sparkle, to create an organic and natural environment to enhance purposeful play. Like Rudolf Steiner we use a range of open ended materials and natural loose parts to encourage children to use their imagination.
Our child-initiated learning enables children to have their voice heard within our setting, not only giving their ideas but also helping create the areas for play. We also use adult initiated provocations to inspire children’s learning, linking these to our Early Years curriculum. By using a range of authentic recourses, children are taught to respect the things around them and use the environment with the highest behavioral standards.
This ethos is visible throughout out free flow setting. Children spend a large part of their time here in our extensive outdoor area! A must see! Go Far strongly believe in the benefits of outdoor play, problem solving, risk taking and having fun while learning. Forest school activities led by qualified staff provide new and exciting challenges.
