Children learn through play. Their curiosity drives them to explore new ways of thinking, discovering new thoughts and ideas through discovery. They use the world around them as a source of endless learning opportunities, exploring their environment and interacting with others.
Young children need guidance and support in these early stages of learning until they develop confidence in their abilities and can take risks independently. A teacher’s role is to provide children with opportunities for meaningful interaction with adults and other children by stimulating environments that encourage young learners’ exploration, investigation and creativity.
