Teachers as facilitators
Everybody who is involved with Aurora is integral to the development of the children.
Each room has a differing number of adults depending on the age and number of children in each class. In charge of pedagogy in each class is the Lead Teacher or the Co-Teachers, who head the projects, documentation and are the first point of contact for communication with families. The Co-Teachers in each class support the Lead Teachers with their duties, documentation and care of the children.
With a deep understanding and knowledge of tools, materials and mediums used in Reggio Emilia schools, our Atelierista helps the children and teachers to realize their long-term projects, making them become real, effective, with a high sense of aesthetic, and multi-dimensional.
The Library Teacher plans various learning engagements to encourage children to engage in literature at each age. These planned sessions help children not only find a love of stories but to think critically and find the value in print. With technology finding its way to the hands of our children, it’s important to teach them Digital Citizenship as a part of their library classes.
The PE Teacher provides a physical education programme that includes swimming, water safety and PE classes for all age groups that promotes health and wellbeing.
The Pedagogista of Aurora has the responsibility to coordinate with the teachers and other team members to ensure the Reggio-Inspired philosophy is followed through pedagogy, daily practices, projects and classroom environments. The Pedagogista works with teachers through professional development and coordinates with experts in The Arts to participate in the growth of Aurora children and staff. The Pedagogista is also a reference person for families wanting to discuss learning and teaching at Aurora.
