We strongly believe in exploratory play, allowing children to engage in play with natural elements. They can use all their senses to discover and test the objects’ properties, what happens when they are manipulated, what they represent, and how they can be used creatively.
This allows children to engage in less structured, open-ended activities in which they learn to think critically, and discover new ideas through trial and error.
Children are intuitive scientists eager to make sense of our world. Introducing science activities into the early years’ curriculum helps children to develop an inquisitive. Children enjoy observing and understanding the properties of some objects, the effect of forces, making predictions, testing their ideas and developing explanations.
