Spring Curriculum Night offered Corlears parents a first-hand look at what inquiry-based learning looks like in their children’s classrooms.

Following a presentation by Corlears’ faculty on how each grade level promotes inquiry-based learning, teachers invited their students’ parents into their classrooms to try various hands-on activities that showcased the importance of using our senses, contextual clues, and observations to dig deeper, ask questions, and ultimately become critical thinkers.

Yoga practice, molding clay, chronologically sorting maps of Manhattan, building habitats for different species of animals, and studying the developmental stages of duck embryos were among the activities parents had an opportunity to try alongside their children’s teachers.

At Corlears, literacy, quantitative reasoning, scientific inquiry, problem solving, and artistic expression are incorporated into every child’s course of study. Click here to learn more about our curriculum designed for curious minds and taught by early childhood experts.
