An environment that promotes complex thinking

When teachers are thoughtful and responsive to the environment, children respond with wonder and awe.  A complex environment brings complex thinking in that engages complex social groups.  Physical exploration is about taking risks, whether you are building with the blocks, or problem solving complex pipe constructions or riding your bike through a challenge course.

The teachers were in awe this week noticing complex play and thinking unfolding and growing each day as the children worked together in both the indoor and outdoor environments.




4 watertroughs staggered by height enable much bigger water exploration.
Of course our amazing Nelson winter makes this all very possible.
So where to next??
