Playdate at Pakubuwono Signature with Alam Atelier Jakarta

The theme for our exciting playdate at Pakubowono was all about our dear Mother Earth! As a Reggio Emilia-inspired school, we believe that children have 100 languages that they use to express themselves, learn, and understand the world around them.

We set up many provocations for the children to explore and learn from. One of them was a sensory tub where a very hungry caterpillar eagerly awaited to be fed by our little friends who came to visit. As they fed the caterpillar, they weren’t just having fun – they were honing their fine motor skills, focus, and attention, all while diving into the magical world of insects.

Another provocation had the captivating life cycle of a caterpillar was laid out, inviting curious minds to explore and discover the wonders of nature. It was a hands-on journey that sparked scientific inquiry and fueled adventurous exploration.

Of course, our playdate wouldn’t have been complete without story time!

We delved into theclassic tale of ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ by Eric Carle, igniting imaginations and weaving dreams with every turn ofthe page.

Let’s not forget our provocation of aquatic animals trapped in plastic – a powerful reminder of the importance of environmental awareness and critical thinking.

It emphasized learning through engagement with the natural world, linking it to our nature-based pedagogy. 

It was a call to action for ouryoung adventurers to becomeguardians of our planet. 

Building on our book reading, we unleashed our creativity by making vibrant fruit art with dragon fruits and spinach! The children also transformed recycled bubble wrap and tissue rollsinto exciting crafts.

As the day drew to a close, we kicked off our shoes and danced to the beat of our favorite songs, filling the air with laughter and joy. Throughout the playdate, our little friends were active participants in their own learning, and their interests and inquiries guided our conversations with them into worlds of inquiry. It was a celebration of friendship, learning, and the boundles magic of children’s early learning journey for a lifelong learning through holistic approach.
