Curriculum

The Ignite Curriculum

No two children learn at the same pace or in the same way.  The Ignite Curriculum embraces these differences and takes a “whole child” approach to develop each student’s cognitive, social, emotional, physical and creative abilities.

The Ignite Curriculum is based on the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF), and is designed to provide children with a sense of Belonging, to recognise and celebrate their Being, and support their Becoming.

The Ignite Curriculum does this by adopting a play-based educational approach that is underpinned by intentional teaching and a strong child-focus.

Educational experiences are designed to support meaning, engagement, and deeper learning by incorporating a diverse range of natural and found resources and materials that create opportunities for open-ended play.

Teachers actively guide each student towards understanding by embracing and building on their interests and strengths.

Learning environments are stimulating, inviting, and purposefully designed to capture children’s interests, imagination, and cater to each individual’s needs.

By taking a holistic approach to education, Young Phoenix Academy prepares children to Ignite and achieve anything they set their minds to.

Every child has a set of wings. They simply need to learn to fly.
