There are no seven wonders of the world in the eyes of a child. There are seven million.” ~Walt Streightiff.
Play and inquiry are at the heart of our kindergarten and first grade curriculum. Children are born with an innate sense of curiosity. At Kegonsa we strive to provoke that curiosity by providing experiences that cause our students to wonder and ask questions. Play and inquiry have many benefits including social-emotional learning through teamwork, shared responsibility and empathy along with promoting children’s effort and persistence. The opportunity to explore their own wonderings leads to love of learning and the need to know even more about the world around them. Students learn to express their wonderings in the form of questions and dig deep into research to find the answers. Sometimes forming even more questions. One or our central themes at Kegonsa is Courageously Curious: our students live our theme through play and inquiry.
