Creative & Critical Thinking

Little_AmeliaThinkers.inq is a place where ideas are valued as part of the journey, not only to reach a destination. A place where thoughts can be captured, explored and developed in a way that helps identify and develop the potential that every child has within them.

This is the process of creative and critical thinking and it underpins everything we teach and do together.

Learning how to think this way from a young age helps support the future learning and success of every child.

All ideas and learning at Thinkers.inq follow creative and critical thinking practices, to develop inquisitive and effective problem solving. One of the tools we will be using to inspired this process will be various forms of interactive technology, such as iPads, iTouches and mobile computers. These tools will be used in such a way to deepen and stretch our imaginations and facilitate purpose filled play. Consequently ‘screen time’ will empower learning and develop potential opportunities for growth and not detract from it.

At Thinkers.inq, we help guide young minds through:

  • creative and critical thinking skills
  • excellent problem solving habits
  • confidence to explore concepts and ideas

'We absolutely love your centre and have nothing but praise for you all. Starting a new place brings with it some fears particularly with separation anxiety, but each day we have had no problems with drop-offs. We thought our daughter would be upset over separation again, but she and her brother are happy to go with no tears at all. That is amazing and shows the comfort and kindness you all show them.

The "word on the street" is what an amazing preschool you have, and I promise that we are adding to that with praise for all that you do.

Since sending our 3-year-old son to Thinkers.inq it has been wonderful to see his progress, they create a really positive environment for the kids! The learning strategies have supported his development and it is a pleasure to see his confidence and enthusiasm grow week on week. He is always excited to show and share with us the day’s activities. A great team that have created delightful surroundings accompanied by an excellent healthy food menu. We feel fortunate to be part of the Thinkers.inq family.

I remember the sunny evening we visited Thinkers.inq. A space of possibility: colourful, creative and inspired. We absorbed a crafts corner with easels and brushes, a ‘corner store’, wooden furniture, cute picnic tables ready for pint-sized picnickers. Further inspection revealed the outdoor amphitheater, the organic gardens, fruit trees, handmade puzzles and high grade, integrated technology. No heavy reliance on plastic toys and ‘babysitting’ here!

..I then heard about Thinkers.inq and from the first moment there I knew I had found what I was looking for our son. The family environment and warmth, the resources available, the inquiry based programming, the space and use of it and to just top it off the amazing healthy no ‘nasties’ food focus...
