I have learned that exploring materials can be really fun especially loose parts. And it allows children to engage in divergent thinking which comes naturally espcially at a young age until we, society starts to change their way of thinking and preceiving the world around them. It’s so important that we as FCC professionals continue to provide a rich divergent learning environment for the children we serve. And allow them many opportunities to explore, express and engage in learning experiences that they can experience hands-on and without being hurried. Time to learn and process new experiences.
