Inquiry Based Approach


The Inquiry-Based Approach within Early Childhood Education…

Our ECE curriculum requires us to prioritise the support of children’s developing working theories.

Children need the skills to inquire, theories, collaborate, and problem-solve. Implementing an inquiry-based project approach curriculum ensures that we have a balance between being child-led and teacher-directed.

Creating opportunities for children to engage in long-term explorations or projects of interest and relevance, based on their real questions and problems, is a meaningful way to design
curriculum.

The workshop will:

  • Help you discover the difference between a unit/topic study and an inquiry project
  • support you to identify and build upon a potential project.
  • explore strategies and skills for facilitating children’s learning through the inquiry.
  • discuss how to document the learning and teaching
