What Is The Curiosity Approach?
We are delighted to announce we have embarked on The Curiosity Approach accreditation scheme at all our nurseries. All nurseries are working towards gaining recognition for providing beautiful play spaces and learning opportunities for children.
The Curiosity Approach is a wondrous ethos that focuses on Curiosity, Awe, and Wonder in Early Childhood. We are excited to start this incredible journey and are thrilled to share it with you.
Over the up coming year, we are looking to reflect on our current practice and standards and strive to make changes to our environment. Looking to use authentic resources, loose parts and an approach that provides wondrous learning opportunities for your incredible little learners.
The Curiosity Approach is an ethos/approach where we focus on and celebrating magical moments in early years, providing passion, and the invitations to learning, which will promote Curiosity, Imagination, and Awe & Wonder for children.
It's exciting news and we hope you will join us on this incredible journey.
Our Nurseries are tranquil places
Through The Curiosity Approach, we aim to provide a home from home environment through a calming tranquil space.
Neutral colours, natural materials, cosy places for children to sit and look at books or engage in deep learning. Bright colors, painted windows and rooms crammed with walls full of displays, laminated sheets and number lines, over stimulate children and can lead to over sensitivity, anxiety, and loss of concentration. We aim to provide excellent learning opportunities without impacting on your child's happiness and well-being.
Why have we moved away from bright colours? Overstimulation.
A stimulating environment to play in and explore helps your child learn and grow. Sometimes too many activities add up to overstimulation. It's a all about finding a balance that's right for your child.
In 2018 we had the privilage of entertaining Stephnie Bennet and Lyndsay Hellyn to all of the Pear Tree Childcare Nurseries to witness 'their' Curiosity Approach in action after our refurbishment plan.

Our boy has been at the nursery for 15 months, joining just before his 2nd birthday. He loves going and talks about his friends and the staff all the time. I've noticed children upset about being left however the motivated and dedicated staff deal with the leaving process sympathetically and caringly. The nursery is professionally run and operates a special relationship with Parents to encourage parental involvement and interaction with the child's needs. The nursery is conveniently located - parking is easy - and has nice, modern, secure outside play area.
