It is a way for children to engage in reflective thinking about their learning experiences, both verbally and non verbally, as well as providing the necessary evidence that supports all developmental documents that link directly to the child’s interest and goals. They can be used as a a reflective tool of children's learning that clarifies where their learning is going, what is the children creating through their interests. 

❌ What will it NOT include?

  • Excessive learning printed out directly from Playground, families have access to playground. The scrap books are for children to have direct access to their own learning as it is unfolding, as well as families being able to come in and see their child/ren's learning when they want to.
  • An over load of written documentation- remember this is for the child.
  • The families cannot take it home for excessive periods of time, we don't want it lost or never returned.
