All children are naturally curious; it is what prompts them to explore new ideas, experiences and further their growth and development. There are many ways to encourage a child’s natural curiosity, which will also help aid their learning.
Music is a great way to get children accustomed to movement, coordination and rhythm. Music rooms equipped with instruments introduces children to new sounds they have yet to experience. Singing and dancing along with the music helps children with their coordination, and following a rhythm.
Much like music, art is a fantastic way for children to express their curiosity through a creative outlet. The colours and textures of art supplies connect children’s senses with their learning, allowing them to grip, touch, and grab materials to create pieces of art. In art rooms, children have the opportunity to make a series of choices to further their own individual learning, imagination and curiosity. These decisions include: types of material to use, what colours to select, and finally what the outcome of their art project will be.
Gross Motor Rooms
Physical activity is a large part of any child’s learning. Movement, coordination and motor skills are all developed and refined within a gym setting. With supervised exploration, children are able to express themselves through physical activity, and begin to understand their orientation in space. Specialty rooms for physical activity help children discover their preference in physical activity, whether it is within a group setting, with toys or play structures, or if they are independently driven.
Literacy activities are essential at any age level. A specialty reading room creates a quiet, yet stimulating environment for children to explore their favourite topics and interests through stories, poems, nursery rhymes and fairy tales. Whether it is on their own, or with the assistance of an educator, children have the opportunity to select what they would like to read, and can learn about new subjects.
