ABOUT “KEY TO LEARNING” APPROACH
Key to Learning is a unique Early Years educational programme for the development of cognitive learning abilities. It is acclaimed as a comprehensive practical approach to bringing the concepts of Vygotsky’s theory of learning and development to the Early Years classroom.
Vygotsky believed that true education is not the mere learning of specific knowledge and skills, it is the development of children’s learning abilities – that is, their capacity to think clearly and creatively, plan and implement their plans, and communicate their understanding in a variety of ways. He believed this could be done by providing them with a set of cultural tools for thinking and creating.
