Shining a Light on Science: Good Practice in Early Childhood Services

Published: 14 Apr 2021

Children are curious by nature and demonstrate this through how they engage with the world. They are eager to explore, question, experiment, and learn about science through the play-based curriculum provided in early childhood contexts. A play-based approach builds on children’s motivation to learn and provides opportunities for them to explore ideas, experiment, and express new ideas. When this occurs, benefits include children becoming better problem solvers and critical thinkers.
