Alternative education curriculum – an education for life.
The Co-op has a flexible curriculum offering alternative education. This allows learning to be more child-centred, with parents planning and presenting activities, providing resources and organizing excursions that support the children’s strengths, interests and passions. Play and social interaction are acknowledged as fundamental to the learning process and often children make free choices about what they learn and when.
The holistic education at Co-op, which aims to cater for a variety of developmental needs, including emotional, social, physical, linguistic, intellectual, and creative development, has a profound influence on both the children and adults throughout their lives. When children from the Co-op start their secondary education, they do so with confidence, positively engaging with the opportunities that high school offers them. Co-op kids are noticeable because of their well-developed social skills, their creativity and their enthusiasm for learning.
