The children are always doing research in their natural environment. The best time to do some free exploration is during our studio time. The studio is a wonderful area filled with many treasures to explore. We as teachers position ourselves in each section of the studio to guide, nurture, and tap into what the children might be thinking. Whether it be housekeeping, the reading loft, science, or the art activities of the day, there are lots of things to explore and investigate, and plenty of opportunities to create masterpieces.
The school year is a developing time to prepare the children by giving them the knowledge to explore and investigate. This will lead them to their future in the Early Childhood Project Approach way of learning.
