The Curiosity Approach is a modern day approach to Early Childhood. Taking parts from Reggio, Steiner, Te Whāriki with a sprinkle of Montessori. Hear a snippet of the talk from the co-founders of this approach at the OMEP Ireland 2018 conference.

“Together with active learning is first had experience…it is important for us in schools to introduce the real world to them.” Children should “want to be investigating…their learning should be relative to them and have meaning for them.” A fantastic talk by one of our Keynotes, Dr Sylvia Chard (The Project approach).
