Learning to Learn

​​​​​At CAN Schools’ Federation we believe that:

  • Children learn through play and first hand experiences that are important and of interest to them.
  • Children learn best when they are taught by well-qualified, skilful, sensitive adults who have a strong sense of fun and who see themselves as learners too!
  • Children learn best when they feel safe, secure, valued and respected.
  • Outdoor play and exploration is just as important as indoor play.
  • Parents are prime educators and we need to work in close partnership with them.
  • Children should be encouraged to explore and experiment, to make choices, think about their actions and learn from the results.
  • Children succeed by developing a love of learning, curiosity and developing a sense of achievement.
Happy New Year
