How we create nurseries without toys?
Nurseries without toys
At Curiosity Approach settings we have moved 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.
Manufactured, plastic electronic toys are becoming more and more intelligent, they perform, move and entertain children. They play MORE than the child does!
Children are sadly becoming passive learners, watching toys act out, as lights flash and noises sound. Children are sitting watching instead of becoming fully immersed in PLAY.
Our mission is to bring PLAY back to childhoods, to rejuvenate children's desire to tinker potter and explore. To be active learners and motivated to be curious, deeply engaged in PLAY.
"Play is essential to our social skills, adaptability, intelligence, creativity, ability to problem solve and more."
Stuart Brown MD
Authentic resources offer multi-sensory sensory experiences. PLASTIC TOYS look and feel the same.
