The World Around Us

From their earliest days, children try to make sense of their world. They are naturally curious about their environment and the people around them and frequently ask questions. Through a wide variety of activities and experiences in play, children begin to develop a range of skills and concepts such as observation and experimentation.

Children will be learning to:

  • use their senses to investigate and describe everyday objects and events
  • show care for living things and the environment
  • handle natural materials with curiosity, such as shells, leaves and stones 
  • talk about the weather and the seasons at appropriate times of the year
