Children's inquiry and effects of environment in early childhood settings.

What does it mean to inquire? Grownups would say it means to question, to search for information, or to finding out about a topic of interest. For children in an early childhood classroom, the definition is no different. From the time of their birth, children want to know how the world works and actively seek out information. How educators respond to their questions is what this book is all about.

What does inquiry look like in early childhood settings? How does the environment affect children’s inquiries and teachers’ thought processes? Inquiry-Based Early Learning Environments examines inquiry in all its facets, including environments that support relationships, create a culture of risk-taking in our thinking, and supports teachers as well as children. Include families and use documentation as a way of thinking about our work. Throughout, stories about environments and approaches to inquiry from around the world are included as examples.
