Curriculum stance

Educational approach

Our understanding of how children and adolescents learn has been enriched in the last 40 years by research into human intellectual, emotional and moral development.

CEP curriculum aims to draw on current research on the way students think and learn and apply these principles into the realm of how we teach children about God. Each curriculum is designed to cater for different learning stages, with language, content and activities written with the needs of each child in mind.

In each curriculum, importance is placed on:

  • teaching concepts in a way that is appropriate for the age and developmental stage of the students.
  • relating all that is taught to their experience.
  • providing discussion and activities that encourage students to reprocess information and make it their own.

CEP uses a range of teaching and learning strategies to engage the intellectual strengths and preferred learning styles of your child.
