Some kind words from
Our curious pioneers
"What a journey it has been! I am beyond proud to be accredited!"
“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.”
Little Stars Nursery
“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.”
PearTree Childcare & Your Nursery Business Owner
"It is such an achievement for myself and my team for be on this journey. I believe we will always be on this journey constantly reflecting and thriving to be the best we can. I couldn't of achieved this without my staff and the Curiosity Academy sites and ideas. It was amazing to come to Birmingham and see the nurseries and implement this to mine.
