The Aga Khan Early Learning Centre’s Educators
AKELC educators know that when adults are responsive, guiding and nurturing, children take more initiative and are more likely to be actively involved and persistent in their activities and learning.
The Centre’s early childhood educators are qualified and trained in working with young children to support learning, to build genuine, warm relationships and to respect and value each child’s personal and cultural identity.
Their knowledge and understanding of developmentally appropriate learning experiences inform and guide their interactions and conversations with children. They plan activities based on children’s development stages and interests and are trained to use positive and meaningful interactions that encourage children’s learning.
Five main learning areas, based on internationally recognized curriculum in early childhood education, guide the educators in supporting and extending children’s development in an integrated and child-directed environment. This internationally recognized early years approach is founded on child development theory and supported by over three decades of research. Each day the children are guided to develop skills in:
- Approaches to learning;
- Language, literacy and communication;
- Social and emotional development;
- Physical development, well-being and health, and
- Arts, mathematics and sciences
