In the Moment Planning

  • In The Moment Planning

    A modern approach to child learning

    At All Children Great & Small, we use In the Moment Planning to ensure that the children’s learning and interests are at the heart of what we do. Our aim is to support the children in becoming more confident, independent and engaged in their learning. We will plan and teach, treating each child as an individual and allowing them to achieve their full potential.

    What is ‘In the Moment’ planning?

    • A model that allows child-initiated learning through play, based on capturing the interests of the children through personalised learning.
    • Our Practitioners will take into consideration the children’s interests to create meaningful educational experiences through providing an enabling environment, using quality interactions and ‘teachable moments’.
    • We will liaise with family members so that you can provide important information regarding your child’s interests and any important up and coming events. We strongly believe that you as parents/carers know your children best and we want to work in partnership with you to create the best learning environment for your child.

    What are ‘teachable moments’?

    Teachable moments are about recognising that young children often learn in a more informal and creative way. Within this style of teaching, we are looking for opportunities to allow learning to take place through child-initiated play alongside providing challenge and open-ended questioning when needed.

    What will we do?

    • We will provide an environment and opportunities that stimulate curiosity and challenge thinking.
    • We will observe and listen closely to the children’s play.
    • We will work alongside parents to create environments that will spark the children’s interest.
    • We will praise and reinforce positive learning experiences.
  • Our philosophy is learning through play as we offer a stimulating environment for children.
