Children are active protagonists of their growth and development processes as our core value at Aurora Ecosystem.
The image of the child
Every child is seen as resilient, confident and competent. We believe that children can express their own ideas, make independent choices, and are able to play and work well with others. In this concept resides our focus on the children’s autonomy and on the importance, we give to children’s opinions and choices.
The Hundred languages of children
“Children need the freedom to appreciate the infinite resources of their hands, their eyes, and their ears, the resources of forms, materials, sounds and colours. They need the freedom to realize how reason, thought, and imagination can create continuous interweavings of things, and can move and shake the world.” (Loris Malaguzzi,1996)
Environment as a third educator
“Environment should be considered as the third educator. We have to create a “complicity” with the environment in order to be able to scaffold, together, children’s learning processes” (C.Fabbi, 2004)
At Aurora, parents are viewed as vital components and contributors to the school’s philosophy and are encouraged to involve themselves in every aspect of their child’s learning experiences.
