DLP: Extending Pedagogy In An Integrated Cycle

AN EPIC SHIFT 

Through understanding the cycle of learning, we have discovered the importance of creating opportunities to enhance knowledge in all environments of a child. Aurora has embarked on the journey to continue the circle of learning by providing a digital method for intentional education at home.

Our digital learning program includes resource packs and live sessions for children who are not coming into the center. Educators trained in the Aurora Curriculum provide tailored classes that combine a specific teacher-led concept with the children’s interests and skills from the center-based programs as well as family input and environmental changes. The resource packs have guided activities that are designed to achieve specific learning outcomes in a variety of Key Focus Areas but also build on children’s holistic development. After a child has engaged with one resource pack, educators will tailor the next resource pack for each individual child and their own learning milestones. 

The DLP is a vehicle to build on a continuum of learning and connect with families that are not physically present. 

We acknowledge families from diverse backgrounds and circumstances, and we intend to work closely with our community to continue to connect with all. We continue to think outside the box and create further opportunities to collaborate and support children and families of the Aurora Village.

We want to create a continuum of learning, in an EPIC way. 

Through understanding the cycle of learning, we have discovered the importance of creating opportunities to enhance knowledge in all environments of a child. Aurora has embarked on the journey to complete the circle of learning by providing a digital method for intentional education at home. Aurora educators design personalized resource packs that are based on individual children’s age, learning journey and specific developmental goals.
