Curiosity Approach

We love the ethos of The Curiosity Approach at Badgers Bridge! This approach means that we use authentic and natural resources and play and learning is led by the child. We are currently trying to remove most plastic from our resources and offer items that promote curiosity with our children. Real woodwork, being outdoors as much as possible and allowing the child to discover for themselves. At Curiosity Approach settings children are given the power, time and space to learn and practice and embed new skills. Children are given the opportunity to build confidence in their own abilities and to learn RESPECT for resources and equipment. To learn HOW to handle items with care and attention. To TRUST in their skills as capable confident learners. We are moving away from plastic toys and electronic gadgets. Opting for the use of loose parts, recycled and authentic resources.'REAL' items that can be found at home! Treasures rescued are from car boots, op or charities shops. Items that normally would be left unloved or thrown away. Authentic real resources which allow children to explore, investigate and discover. Have a look at our gallery to see more.
