Early childhood education builds on the basic values of society that we build into Early Childhood Education and Care at MVJ International School - these values translate into the image of the child at MVJIS - to build foundations for life. Our priority is to ensure each child feels safe, secure and supported, fostering a sense of belonging and the opportunity to flourish.
We are committed to the development and nurturing of mutually respectful relationships with children and families within our diverse community of learners. We value children as unique individuals who are powerful contributors to their own learning, as well as the learning encounters that are experienced as being part of a group.
By providing periods of uninterrupted time to play, children find inspiration, joy and gain a sense of well-being. Our engagement with the great outdoors empowers children to connect with nature facilitating their social, spiritual, physical, intellectual and emotional learning. Children are respected, with educators holding a strong image of the child, believing they are capable, competent, curious and full of potential.
Toddlers: Our PlayGroup Explorers - Early Starters
Two-year-olds enjoy using their senses and motor skills to explore the world and are highly curious about unfamiliar objects, events and phenomena.
New discoveries are also facilitated by a two-year-old's blossoming language skills that prompt many "why," "what" and "how" questions. Physically, two-year-olds explore all the ways to travel from here to there, including rolling, crawling, creeping, walking, running, jumping and climbing. Two-year-olds enjoy playing alongside other children by socialising and learning behaviour pattern.
