We strongly believe that children are small and mighty learners. Given an environment with the right energy, time, space, and materials to explore, and with caring and attentive educators to learn with, every child will be an active participant in their own growth and education.
We value a holistic and inclusive classroom that fosters risk-taking and resilience, with the aim to nurture children that leave us as:
- Playful and Persistent Learners
- Caring and Curious Citizens
- Confident and Capable Communicators
Rhyme and Reason offers a teacher-student ratio of 1:8 to ensure that every child receives the nurturing and responsive care they deserve.
Our Educators are highly-qualified and extremely passionate, with years of experience in a wide variety of classrooms, teaching methodologies, program structures, and continuing training.
We offer ten sessions a week, and families can choose either morning or afternoon sessions for 1,2,3,4, or 5 days a week. We do not split our classroom into traditional age cohorts, instead using iso-principle to gauge where our students’ energy levels are and stream them through the ‘energetic start to the day’ or the’ calm start to the day’ (this is assessed on a daily basis so children get to experience a variety of cohort combinations). Parent Volunteers are scheduled on a regular basis to join in and witness the learning that takes place in our classroom. Special Guests and Partner Organizations also join us regularly for enhanced learning opportunities. We want the world to be our classroom, so in our brief hours in our indoor learning centre, we will bring the world to us.
