Afbeelding voor Curiosity
How do we foster curiosity in our Montessori Environments? Do we offer our children the resources, the freedom and the time to explore and create?

Pete Moorhouse is an early years creative consultant and artist educator and has a deep level of experience and understanding, both as a Practitioner and as a Researcher at Bristol University in supporting the development of children’s creative and critical thinking.

In this article, ‘Curiosity‘, Moorhouse sets out how curiosity is innate and forms the very foundation of children’s learning. When allowed to follow their natural curiosity, children will learn most deeply. How do we support that in our Montessori environments?

Montessori believed that the period between age 3 – 6 was “a special period for the construction of the imagination” (Montessori, 2012: 174). How can we go about nurturing that in our practice?

Moorhouse shares a wealth of resources on his website.
