At the moment we have two younger groups in Olari, in one of the groups the children are aged 1-4 years. The other group consists of children aged 3-5 years. The environment is set up to promote and enable inquisitive learners so that not only do they express themselves verbally but also through the hundred languages as described in Loriz Malaguzzi’z poem. There is a lot of room for independent self expression through mark making, painting, construction and role play equipment. Like in all our settings, in this setting too our educators are inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach. There are also opportunities to promote group work as children at this stage start developing their social and cognitive skills for purpose full and non-purposeful play. Given that the nursery is located near the woods and park, nature forms a very important part of children’s learning process. To find out more about the educators in this group meet the Olari team.
