Why does it rain? How do carrots grow? Do fish breathe? Are you barraged with questions daily? It's time to use those opportunities to encourage curiosity. In this episode, Rachel and Claire discuss the importance of inquiry and share simple strategies for you to make time for curiosity.
Curiosity is an important skill that enhances cognitive and social-emotional development, gives your child confidence, and contributes to their love of learning. If your child is asking you a question, instead of answering, try responding with, "what do you think?" or "let's find out." Minimizing direction and instruction will help your child build that curious mindset. Learn from our early childhood experts, Rachel Robertson and Claire Goss, about the simple strategies to make time in your day to encourage curiosity.
