Building The Nest: Kidzu’s Early Learning Environment
Kidzu Children’s Museum has enabled thousands of children across North Carolina to access critical early childhood educational experiences within the museum and through community outreach. Now we seek to harness our experiences and collaborate with our academic and early learning colleagues to create The Nest, an early learning lab designed specifically for infants and toddlers ages 0-3. The Nest will galvanize the excellence in informal learning that Kidzu provides with the rigorous research and academic excellence of our university partners and the expertise of educators rooted in the Reggio-Emilia developmental philosophy of learning, to create an environment and accompanying programs, activities and resources that nurture critical healthy brain development, and encourage curiosity, discovery, and confidence in Kidzu’s very youngest learners.
