A child is naturally inquisitive, knowledge is gained through this inquisitive nature. They touch sand, gaze at the flowers, watch the butterflies, experience the slippery feel of worms, touch water, experience fear of the buzzing bees. Teachers allow the children to learn by experience. Rather than label things the teacher waits for the child to ask ‘what is this, where does it live?’
When COLT children arrive at the Educare each morning they know that they are in a safe, nurturing environment with a predictable routine, where learning is fun!
