Great Learning Begins With Wonder

  • 03 December 2015

The skills that come so naturally to our children - questioning, imagining, creating - can result in extraordinary things if they are maintained through to adulthood. Although most of our children probably won't make careers as professional artists we do live in a society that values creativity, problem-solving, the ability to see things in new ways. In a play-based program we try to respect and nurture each child's unique view of the world. We hope that by teaching them early on that all ideas are worth listening to and thinking about, they will hold on to the confidence and open-mindedness of childhood as they grow and go out into the world.
