Community of Learners is one of the vital area of the Mariners Star. It illustrates how important it is for children to be part of a community of learners in order to best learn and develop. Being part of a community of learners means that all participants consider and contribute to one another’s well-being and learning. To create such a community in the classroom, good teachers should consider and take the initiative to get to know all the children and their parents/families.
In a community of learners, children’s learning/education and safety/care are equally important. Aside from learning through their positive relationships with other children, they also learn through their positive relationships with the adults including the parents and the teachers. Finally, when teaching them, the content of the curriculum, environments, and the materials being used are also important because it impact what and how they will learn.
