One of the most valuable things we do at The Clifton School is to document the process of learning.
The practice requires that we both photograph and record in writing the evolution of the children’s progress as they learn and grow.
In most instances, the ideas and concepts we explore are child-led. They essentially spring from an interest or question or theory the children themselves have asked to investigate or test or want to know more about.
Documentation allows us as parents and educators to gain deeper insight into the critical thinking of young children and to tailor curriculum experiences that more closely meet their needs, interests, capabilities, and will be both challenging and engaging.
