Understanding the World
Understanding of the World involves supporting children's development as they try to make sense of the world around them. Children learn about their own and other people’s cultures in order to appreciate the similarities and differences between them in a diverse society. They are encouraged to explore and investigate materials and the natural world, to learn about change and patterns, to recognize similarities and differences, and to question how things work. We help them to use a variety of tools and techniques to assemble materials creatively and safely. They will also develop an understanding of technology through using programmable toys and the computer.
