Bridget James & Faye Taylor

Manuka - Year 1

Bridgit, Juliet and Faye work together to provide a nurturing environment which supports young students as they begin their learning journeys at school. The focus is on enabling the continuous exploration of the world within a Learning Through Play approach. Curiosity and creativity, kindness and caring are fostered, and the children’s interests and wonderings are developed wherever possible. An understanding of the Growth Mindset is key, with the need to keep trying and to be a courageous learner encouraged. Introductions to the more formal aspects of learning and the embodiment of the school values are woven throughout the programme.
