As a nursery we have started to incorporate The Curiosity Approach into our home corners to allow children to role play from their own first hand experiences at home.
We tried to mirror the home in the home corner and children can explore items they might find in their own home.
Objects from homes around the world are also incorporated to allow children to gain knowledge of the world around them.
Ceramic tea sets and table ware are also used to allow children to manage their own risks and learn to respect resources they explore. Plastic resources are so often disregarded and thrown on the floor whereas children have an understanding that these things need to be treated carefully and with respect in order to use them.
