During my stay at Inspire I was privileged enough to visit three pre-schools. In each setting I was able to chat a little with the teachers and they were keen to learn about teaching methods that I use. I was also able to share some songs and games with the children.
What really stood out to me about the pre-schools were the children's happiness and the outdoor learning spaces. The use of flowers and natural materials was evident and conveyed a sense of love and pride for the outdoors. In a hot country such as Sri Lanka the outdoor classroom is important. Much learning is done outside and it was obvious that the pupils and staff really care for nature and growth in these spaces and do much to enhance the learning spaces.
