At Lowell, we believe inquiry begins with a provocation to know more. Teachers actively engage students in the process of inquiry, providing children with rich, stimulating materials and opportunities that are both thoughtfully planned and delightfully spontaneous.
We know that young children need a caring environment with a lot of structure. Creating that environment includes a daily schedule with a simple but clearly articulated sequence of activities that help children adjust to school routines. It also includes introducing children to materials and spaces within the classrooom or playground in a systematic and understandable way so that they can develop independence and ownership of their learning.
