Emergent curriculum is a method of planning and curriculum that is responsive to children's interests, and is meaningful, relevant and engaging for each child.
Educators will monitor learning through observation and conversations with children and their families to help identify useful topics. Planning is essential and educators work together to form hypotheses on possible directions for learning projects.
Educators purposefully observe each child to identify significant learning when it occurs and confirm that each child’s learning is progressing across all areas of development. This approach to learning ensures that children are curious and active learners.
