Would you like to to expel a Curiosity Approach® myth?

Plastic ivy MYTH!

Curious to learn more?

At The Curiosity Approach we are inspired by Rudolph Steiner and connecting to nature. 

Therefore we wanted to help expel a fast and wide spreading myth, a misunderstanding that Curiosity Approach® environments and settings are wrapped in swathes of plastic ivy. 

We understand people love to be Curiosity Approach inspired & in our Academy we discuss this topic regularly & discuss the reasons behind the WHY.

At Curiosity Approach® accredited settings we look to get outdoors at every possibility but also bring nature indoors.

This is covered in one of our Modules ‘Senses’ from our Curiosity Approach® Accreditation toolkit.

To move away from plastic, instead of bringing more of the stuff into our settings, through the use of garlands of plastic ivy.

Why? What’s the purpose?

David Attenborough tells us that “People must feel that the natural world is important and valuable and beautiful and wonderful and an amazement and a pleasure.”
