Piptree's Education Philosophy
At Piptree, our ultimate objective is to assist in developing children into life-long learners who are equipped with the skills and motivation to teach themselves as they develop.
To help us achieve this objective, we have implemented a carefully selected variety of educational toys into our early learning centres. The toys available for use at Piptree have been creatively designed with a strong emphasis placed on both learning and environmental friendliness.
Young children learn most effectively through play - playing is learning and learning is playing. Children all around the world deserve the highest quality learning materials. Each product has been designed to inspire structured learning, by stimulating curiosity and exploration of the world we live in. We research all of our products thoroughly to ensure that they provide children with the best learning outcome possible.
The key philosophy behind our educational toys is that neither culture, language, nor gender should obstruct the intuitive process that occurs when children are playing. This philosophy has been achieved by parents and educators recognising what children see as fun, and tailoring those activities toward learning age-appropriate life skills.
The toys used in our centres specialise in development and education in the following key domains:
At the centre of these key learning domains is the concept of social competence, which ties together each of the outcomes to deliver a well-rounded education for children from as young as babies to 6 years old and beyond.
Now you can bring these educational toys home!
To achieve our ultimate objective of developing life-long learners, we recognise that a significant amount of play takes place at home. What better way to stimulate effective learning through play than by making these tools available for your child both at home and in the classroom? Each toy has its own unique learning guide which will be available to download, so that parents can understand the learning outcome that the toy is designed to achieve.
We are proud of our products and are committed to regularly updating our catalogue with new and innovative toys that will assist in achieving the most well-rounded education for your child!
