It’s no secret that children are naturally curious and inquisitive. After all, how many times have you heard the word “Why” being tossed about in conversations with your little ones? At Kiddiwinkie Schoolhouse, children’s natural curiosity is welcomed and encouraged, thanks to its creativity-inspired curriculum that takes a play-based approach.
Creativity-inspired curriculum that encourages inquiry
Terms such as “creativity-inspired” and “play-based” may seem like trendy buzzwords, but what does it mean when it comes to your toddler’s development? A curriculum that’s infused with elements of creativity will stimulate different areas of your child’s brain, and help them effectively develop critical thinking, planning skills and focus. Simply put, they may be able to problem-solve more quickly or find new ways to look at the things and situations around them. This approach also helps children identify what they’re interested in, and teaches them about their own abilities and limits. It can also help boost memory skills, vocabulary, and their keen sense of exploration.
Teachers at Kiddiwinkie Schoolhouse encourage each child based on their current abilities, interests and needs. They motivate children each day to develop their knowledge through active exploration. No question is too small, as the teachers work with children to find the right answers.
Outdoor play and inquiry-based learning
At Kiddiwinkie Schoolhouse, children get a head start in life by balancing learning with play and school readiness, all while honing 21st century competencies that empower their learning curve. Younger children will learn through purposeful play, while older preschoolers will enjoy inquiry-based learning – these processes offer them opportunities to develop language and literacy skills as well as social and emotional skills, all while fueling their growing curiosity with a sense of wonder. There’s also an outdoor play element at Kiddiwinkie Schoolhouse, as most of its centres have a generous outdoor space where children can learn through play.
