It rained quite a bit this week. But that didn’t stop us from playing at The Garden House. We found new and creative indoor experiences. As Loris Malaguzzi said, “Children need the freedom to appreciate the infinite resources of their hands, eyes and their ears, the resources of their forms, materials, sounds and colours.” We certainly had ample opportunities to use all our senses to explore this week.
Our Basils class (3 to 5 years) did plenty of dancing. We explored whole body movement through balancing and jumping.
After exploring cookbooks, they also had the chance to draw different dishes and create beautiful pieces at our art atelier.
Our Cili Padis (18 months to 3 years) explored painting on different surfaces (paper, concrete pillars and mirrors), learning about various colours and textures.
The toddlers worked together. Using construction blocks and Lego, they built roads for toy cars as well as a bright yellow giraffe.
