Our approach aims to create ‘thinkers & doers’ by putting the child at the centre of their own development and education. We understand the importance of children’s characteristics of effective learning and encourage children’s natural curiosity and eagerness to explore and create.
At the Holly House our mission is to give your child the very best start in life. We have an experienced, long serving staff team and our Early Years Teacher helps to lead quality teaching across the setting.
How does the Curiosity Approach work?
The philosophy is centred around the natural curiosity which we are all born with. Providing children with a calm, stress-free environment filled with open-ended resources available at eye-level allows them to figure things out themselves.
Children are challenged to use all their senses to explore and discover how different material feels, how they sound and how they interact.
This encourages children to think for themselves and build confidence without the need for guidance. Children are given the opportunity to use their creativity, imagination, critical thinking, problem-solving and more to teach themselves.
