Our Early Learning Philosophy

At Hollywood PS, we value purposeful play, allowing children to apply a new skill or knowledge in a hands on, play based environment.

We believe play involves all aspects of the curriculum, and is active and creative, avoiding worksheets and cloned expectations.

It is child initiated, and is owned by the child and not the adult.

Play not only allows children to apply their knowledge and skills, but also assists children in developing their social skills, and oral language skills.

The staff at Hollywood PS promote and facilitate high quality teaching through the balance of child-directed activities and explicit teaching.

A balanced, evidence-based approach of intentional, guided and child-centred play is planned to ensure children have opportunities to grow.
