MLC Kindle were delighted to be invited to take part in an exhibition presented by Independent Schools Victoria and Reggio Emilia Australian Information Exchange: Reimagining Children, Spaces & Relationships.
The exhibition, which consisted of nine schools in total, highlights MLC Kindle’s participation in the three-year Thinker in Residence research project on Reggio Emilia education.
With the goal of creating a culture of teacher research at MLC Kindle, this research has been the focus for much of the teaching and learning taking place at Kindle in 2018 and 2019.
The research project undertaken across all classrooms asked the focus question: "How do we (children, educators and families) encounter our outdoor spaces?"
MLC Kindle collected data and implemented inquiry projects in their classrooms in response to this question. Data was also gathered from staff, parents, families and Murrundindi with the hope to better understand the learning that is taking place in the outdoors and ways in which we can enhance and transform this learning space at MLC Kindle.
Feedback from our display was very positive and the whole exhibition well attended. All visitors walked away with a package of greeting cards made by the Kindle students themselves. It is most gratifying to have MLC Kindle being recognised publicly as a leading educator!
