What Is The Curiosity Approach?
We are delighted to announce we have embarked on The Curiosity Approach accreditation scheme at all our nurseries. All nurseries are working towards gaining recognition for providing beautiful play spaces and learning opportunities for children.
The Curiosity Approach is a wondrous ethos that focuses on Curiosity, Awe, and Wonder in Early Childhood. We are excited to start this incredible journey and are thrilled to share it with you.
Over the up coming year, we are looking to reflect on our current practice and standards and strive to make changes to our environment. Looking to use authentic resources, loose parts and an approach that provides wondrous learning opportunities for your incredible little learners.
The Curiosity Approach is an ethos/approach where we focus on and celebrating magical moments in early years, providing passion, and the invitations to learning, which will promote Curiosity, Imagination, and Awe & Wonder for children.
It's exciting news and we hope you will join us on this incredible journey.
Our Nurseries are tranquil places.
Through The Curiosity Approach, we aim to provide a home from home environment through a calming tranquil space.
Neutral colours, natural materials, cosy places for children to sit and look at books or engage in deep learning. Bright colors, painted windows and rooms crammed with walls full of displays, laminated sheets and number lines, over stimulate children and can lead to over sensitivity, anxiety, and loss of concentration. We aim to provide excellent learning opportunities without impacting on your child's happiness and well-being.
Why have we moved away from bright colours? Overstimulation.
A stimulating environment to play in and explore helps your child learn and grow. Sometimes too many activities add up to overstimulation. It's a all about finding a balance that's right for your child.
In 2018 we had the privilage of entertaining Stephnie Bennet and Lyndsay Hellyn to all of the Naturally Curious Childcare Nurseries to witness 'their' Curiosity Approach in action after our refurbishment plan.

Food and diet are also really important to me, so it is lovely to see that Pear Tree Day Nursery take care and consideration is given to planning the meals and the variety of meals which are freshly cooked for the children. I have a child who has sometimes been a little reluctant to join in some activities, but the staff have gently encouraged him and now he has a real pride in showing the things he has done on display or bringing them home.
