The power of exploration

How do our children learn? 

How should teachers respond? 

We believe that a child's knowledge base is formed from past experiences and interactions with the world through learning and communication. This knowledge forms the basis for children's continuous learning.

Teachers listen and observe purposefully through communication and interaction between children and their peers, adults and materials. In Huili Nursery Hangzhou, our teachers can reflect and assess the level of children's existing skills, knowledge and interests. To explore the learning characteristics of each child and expand their current knowledge, teachers often design and plan different learning stories to extend and challenge children and expand their thinking.



We believe that the most rewarding learning experiences for children are those relevant and meaningful to their lives. Exploration is an integrated way of learning for us because it supports our children to discover the meaning of learning. For example, children's water exploration can also provide them with opportunities to observe, apply mathematics and science, and participate in social communication.


How do we plan the exploration learning curriculum?  

At Huili nursery Hangzhou, we plan and design learning and exploration experiences with children through a series of observations on their interests, behaviour and 'imagination' of the world. To ensure that we are further developing our children's learning, we will integrate the objectives in the learning experiences and guides planned for the children with the curriculum. 




The teaching plan covers daily, weekly and monthly, designing and creating diverse opportunities to ensure that each child's experience of exploring practical learning is integrated and connected. Children and teachers work together to understand different concepts of learning that fully integrates learning into a powerful experience.

We will share our meaningful research projects through communication boards, weekly newsletters, observation reports, and project displays to effectively achieve parent and nursery interaction.
