The Inquiry Approach to Education is a child-centered method driven by the exploration of materials, or world concepts. As they investigate, children ask questions, make new discoveries, test their discoveries, and learn new concepts.
Children are born with a natural curiosity about the world we live in. Whether amazed by a bird flying by or smelling a flower, to observing how fast or slow a car rolls down a hill, children are learning. Children are always encountering the world with wonderment and awe.
When children are engaged in discovering something new they are creating connections in their brain as they build new knowledge. Children learn as they play and interact with their world. Play is the vehicle that drives them to learn about science, diversity, interdependence, relationships.
