Welcome to The Planet Discovery Centre new campus and initiative taken by Centre of Environment Education. The centre Launch is on June 5th 2018, World Environment Day, we are delighted to begin the 2018-2019 centre year! We have an exciting year planned ahead with Nature Pedagogy, a way of working with children and creating settings for care and education that embraces nature. It includes the educational environments we create, the process of assessment and planning, and the learning journeys that we encourage children and families to take throughout childhood and make them lifelong learners.
Nature Pedagogy is defined as “the art of being with nature, and beyond.”The purpose of the Parent Information Handbook is to provide you with a comprehensive overview of our policies and procedures. It is a handy day-to-day reference, as well as a source of information about the philosophy underlying our curriculum and nature life programmes. This year, with the start of the Discovery Centre, the ethos and philosophy ,our affiliation to North American Association of Environment Education , Nature Start partnership, the Parent Handbook is an effort to streamline information for parents. This handbook will be updated and revised annually to provide all CEE’s The Planet Discovery Centre families as a downloadable PDF on the centre website.
A strong partnership between the centre, the community and our parents makes a difference in every child’s education as we share the responsibility for the success stories our children accomplish.
We encourage suggestions from parents, so please feel free to write and reach out to the centre, your child’s teacher or any other staff member, if you have any comments or questions.
We would love to share our passion, our a shared vision to bring the best potential in every child as we believe each child is unique and has a unique thumbprint
On behalf of our faculty and staff, I would like to wish you all a wonderful green centre year ahead.
