What is Inquiry-based learning?

The teachers [and parents] need only to observe and listen to the children, as they continuously suggest to us what interests them, and what they would like to explore in a deeper way

~ Malaguzzi talking about choosing projects


Inquiry-based learning is exploring a range of common curriculum areas - language, maths, art, science, history and so on - through deep and sustained inquiry. We choose areas to explore by observing our children, watching their play and listening to their questions. 

Inquiry-based learning is a slow process; a gradual unfolding of learning that can be undertaken over weeks, months or even years.
