C&K Birkdale South embraces Listening and Learning Together: C&K Curriculum Approach which is a play based, emergent and co-constructed curriculum giving emphasis to encouraging children to express and transform their ideas and understandings in play and the many languages of children.
 
Children are encouraged to represent their own world in order to learn about and understand their world. In the process of representation, as they actively play and interact with others, engage with a rich variety of materials and ideas, children’s language and social abilities are fostered.
 
Language, literacy and numeracy are embedded in a program where children are recognised as thinkers and theorises. They are encouraged to think flexibly and creatively as they seek solutions to conflicts and problems. Children are empowered to make their own decisions and choices.
 
They have many opportunities to respond to the beauty and order of the natural world. Most significantly, children learn best when they have available to them a knowledgeable and informed adult, capable of engaging them intellectually as well as emotionally, and who is in turn capable of being engaged intellectually and emotionally by them.
