“After having my daughter I really felt like I lost my passion for my nursery and my business, but since being inspired by the Curiosity Approach I have 100% got my mojo back. I will be forever grateful I came across this wonderful approach, which has completely changed my early years practice and my life as a nursery owner.”
“We'd started to use in the moment planning and begun to ditch the plastic, introducing loose parts, natural and found resources. It was going well, but we felt something was missing. Then we saw The Curiosity Approach and everything fell into place. This was what we were striving for – to step outside our comfort zones with the same goal in mind.”
“Stephanie Bennett and Lyndsey Hellyn have helped me find my sparkle! My nursery has never been so full of creative, enthusiastic and engaged staff and children! The Curiosity Approach has been a great support for me and my staff and has given us the confidence to let our imaginations run wild! It has been fun developing my nursery and finding my true ethos.”
“We know children are naturally inquisitive, however The Curiosity Approach ethos promotes curiosity, awe and wonder in Early Childhood. Creating beautiful and aesthetically pleasing play spaces for children using provocations, loose parts and open-end resources. It’s amazing to see us all have light bulb moments, maybe epiphanies which inspired us to make wondrous changes.”
“My colleague Amanda and I attended the first Curiosity Approach Development Day in August after being inspired by the vast array of experiences they offer children. Our curiosity was also ignited. The day did not disappoint. In fact on several occasions it even made us well up with their driven staff who have one thing on their mind - best outcomes for children.”
