  • Encourage problem-solving and reflection by asking open-ended questions and provide information in response to children’s ideas, insights, and concerns
  • Provide a supportive, safe learning environment to encourage discovery, questioning and experimentation
  • Cultivate emotional literacy and empathy to develop self-esteem
  • Nurture self-expression, creativity and reflection
