Children thrive in an open-ended environment, one in which they can explore how the world works and how to express their ideas through drawing, creating art, movement, music, writing, graphing, and playing. Subtle shifts in your daily routine can create an environment where experimentation happens, where questions can be asked and answers given without worrying about “getting it right”, and where adults and children discover the learning together.
