Our Program

Individual program for each child

Each child at AECC has their own individual learning program, informed by the child's interests, strengths, and needs as well as parent feedback.

All learning is play-based, meaning children learn through a mixture of free uninterrupted play in purposeful environments as well as provocations and activities set up to invoke curiosity and exploration.

 

Parents have access to their child's learning program at all times, while a summative assessment is provided 3 times per year.
