IN-PERSON! Inspiring Curiosity to Play: Creating Provocations and Invitations to Play

June 3, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am



Inspiring Curiosity to Play: Creating Provocations and Invitations to Play

@Granville Bambini, Edmonton West

How do we create an environment that extends on children’s natural curiosity and interests in the classroom? How can we introduce new ideas, based on our observations and our understanding of possibilities for children? What activities can we do that promote play? Rooted in the emergent curriculum approach, creating provocations and invitations are a part of how we can build an environment that stimulates curiosity, exploration and encourage independent divergent and critical thinking. Instead of providing activities that focus on specific outcomes or learning skills, we provide provocations to stimulate a wholistic approach to playful learning. In doing so, we need to be responsive to the children’s interests, extend their learning and inspire curiosity to explore. Learn how to showcase these amazing displays and invite deep thinking and deep play to stimulate and build upon your children’s interests and sense of wonder.


  1. Defining Provocations to Play
  2. Foundations to Play Experiences, Provocations & Invitations to Play
