Doctor Curious



If you are curious about something, you are interested in it and want to know more about it.

(Collins Dictionary)


Why is this important?


Curiosity helps children be more observant, to think about things and try to figure them out. When children explore their curiosity, they expand their vocabulary as they use language to describe what they're thinking, seeing, hearing, or experiencing. 


When learning to be curious, children also learn to:


  • be inquisitive

  • take risks

  • be brave

  • be courageous

  • ask questions

  • be open-minded
