Full Capacity Learning

“Traditional preschool approaches employ classroom based, adult-led activities with very specific outcomes as the framework for learning, and outdoor free play as a break from those activities. At Tumbleweed, open-ended and child-led exploration occupies most of the childrenʼs time. The teachers’ roles are to support and scaffold each child’s learning instead of dictate or control it. As such, what looks like children are just “blowing off steam”, running, jumping, climbing, and shouting out here, they are actually doing everything else as well, learning at full capacity. “

Found in this awesome post here from Tumbleweed Infant House.
