Little Explorers

Little Explorers is our unique program which has been designed to offer students rich and varied learning experiences, matched to their individual stage of development.   Little Explorers provides opportunities for students to become highly engaged in their learning.   Thus promoting the growth of the whole child, emotionally, socially, cognitively, spiritually and physically; as well as extending vocabulary and language through rich conversations with their peers, teachers and parents.   We want each student to make connections to the world around them as they develop deep understandings in meaningful contexts.

Here at SRPS our passionate and committed staff strive to develop confident, creative, independent and self-directed 21st century thinkers and learners.  We believe that all students are highly competent, capable and resourceful.   We understand that they do not all learn the same thing in the same way, at the same time and at the same rate.

Little Explorers is extremely beneficial and provides a positive learning experience for everyone.   We aim to promote the acquisition of lifelong skills as children are actively engaged in their learning.  All of the learning areas and experiences reflect the curriculum learning that is taking place within the classroom as well as the current interests of students.  Students are encouraged to extend their learning as they practise, investigate and discover within each area.

We aim to promote:

  • High levels of engagement
  • Motivation
  • Skills acquisition and decision making
  • Improved oral language
  • Creativity
  • Questioning
  • Responsibility
