Curiosity did not kill the cat

Friday 18th November

We love curiosity. It’s at the heart of what we do, it makes life more fun, and we believe it’s the spark that ignites imaginations and encourages exploration and innovation.

Did you know that curiosity is also a valuable skill? There’s evidence that links curiosity to employability, something we want for ourselves and for our kids. It’s as important in our lives as intelligence, and it can open our kids’ minds to new ideas and experiences, and can help them (and us!) to make sense of otherwise complex situations and problems.

It’s also an important part of relationship building. Curious people find it easier to connect with others, so it can help your kids to make friends and learn to collaborate.

The best part is that curiosity can be coached. Although it’s technically a personality trait, our experiences and environments can influence and encourage curiosity. So the easiest thing to do is to start playing, and keep playing!

I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious.
-Albert Einstein
