Early Years Philosophy
At Morayfield East State School our Early Years Philosophy guides the work we do with our students in Prep – Year 2. We see young students as capable learners who bring a variety of knowledge's and experiences with them into the school setting. Our Early Years Programs aim to encourage active learning, problem solving, exploration, effective communication, creativity, socialisation and participation, as we consider these as necessary for a student's long-term success in education and in life.
Age-appropriate pedagogies support early years teachers to apply a range and balance of teaching approaches and characteristics of quality teaching in their classroom practice. Teachers are supported to align curriculum, age-appropriate pedagogies and assessment to maximise children's engagement in learning and to enhance outcomes. We also understand the importance of fostering the whole child and use Reboot to teacher emotional resilience and self regulation which are life long skills.
Morayfield East Mini Our Early Years Mascot
During 2020 we welcomed Mini to our Early Years Team. Mini is a great helper to our Early Years students. Mini loves to read, visit the prep classes and go to playgroup. Mini loves to celebrate with students when they reach their reading goals in class! Mini's most favourite activity is helping our new Prep students settle into their new classrooms. Keep an eye out for mini during your transition days!
