Encouraged to Explore :)

Immersed in a purposeful play space, Yüme Children are actively encouraged to explore, be curious, appreciate culture, scientific inquiry and find interest in new themes through hands-on activities and cross-curricular Learning Units and Skills programmes.

This is our approach

Inquiry Based Learning

Our Reggio inspired approach promotes curiosity in children, introducing new ideas, and knowledge that comes from the children’s own questions. It’s not just the educator that imparts knowledge: we challenge children with real or imaginary scenarios, that allow them to develop their own learning experiences.

Pedagogy of Play

Play is at the center of all our activities and learning opportunities at Yüme. This pedagogy embraces both free and structured play, as they allow children to understand their (place in the) world, make friendships, and test or risk-assess ideas through engaging activities.

Resources & Environment

Our exploratory environments promote children's independence, encouraging them to explore and make their own choices on the activities or resources they want to engage with. We promote the use of natural / wooden resources, over plastic, and include loose parts (for open ended exploration) and Montessori resources, for their academic value in areas of literacy, maths and understanding of the world.
