Mission, Vision and Philosophy

 

Our mission is to inspire creativity and nurture global citizens and leaders of the future.

We do this by creating joyful learning environments, led by a community of exceptional teachers who bring out the best in every child through a personalised approach to learning and by inspiring curious minds.

Our Vision at Tung Chung Kindergarten is for our learning community to Wonder, Aspire and Flourish

At Tung Chung Kindergarten we are inspired by the Reggio Emilia Approach. The approach requires children to be seen as competent, resourceful, curious, imaginative, inventive and possess a desire to interact and communicate with others. Teachers are seen as reflective, co-constructive practitioners, collaborating and facilitating opportunities that provoke thought, wonder, investigation and exploration.

The image of the parent and teacher are important elements to this approach and must also be considered within the environment.The approach advocates for all parents to be accorded deep respect and viewed as partners in their child’s education.

The learning environment as third teacher is founded in the image of the child, parent and teacher. It is a welcoming and inviting space to children and families.

We promote a sense of belonging and create an environment that allows children to see that we value and respect them as individuals and as part of the learning community. We organize environments rich in possibilities and provocations that invite the children to play and work with and alongside others. It is designed and arranged with great attention to detail to ensure they are comfortable and that the space is aesthetically stimulating.

We endeavour to provide numerous opportunities for children to research, develop their own ideas and test out their theories using their many languages of expression. We allow them time to think and investigate, negotiate with one another, make choices and reasoned decisions. We create a space where they can solve problems and know their ideas are valued.
