Course Length: 3 hours

At present there is a great focus on Child led learning, what does this look like in practice and how can you ensure that the child is at the centre of their learning journey. This course will equip you to create, develop and follow the Child’s journey through a simple but highly effective approach to documenting learning.

Language of Literacy and Mathematics in Early Years

Course Length: 3 hours

Course Type: Face to face

At present there is a high level of talk going on in our educational settings and not enough listening. This course will discuss the benefits of both and produce a base line for practitioners to create a platform for literacy and language, that is in relation to our children and that is in context to their world. Maths surround us in everyday life and yet we tend to think that we have no immediate connection with the subject. We will explore how to recognise this, and how to engage with and nurture young children in our care, to connect with Mathematics in ways that make sense to them in their daily life.

Aims

  • Explore the role of the adult, resources and environment in support of the child’s development
  • Explore a variety of approaches to literacy and the methodology to develop these
  • Explore the importance of literacy in supporting the child’s learning
  • Explore a variety of approaches to create and support children’s mathematical knowledge and understanding
  • Explore the importance of mathematics in supporting the child’s learning, creating motivational experiences both indoor and out in a way that connects the child to their own learning

Outcomes

  • Review current practice in supporting and developing all aspects of mathematics
  • Identify and evaluate the balance of language used by children in our setting and create a strategy to develop other forms of literacy and mathematics and how staff nurture this for the child
  • Assess and identify the adult role, resources and environment to take forward current practice

Outdoor Play Spaces

It is estimated that currently, our children spend less than 45 minutes per day outdoors in our care. However, it is also estimated that 2000 hours of their Childhood is spent in an Early Years Play area. This is the most time spent in any other play space offered to Children. Unfortunately, many spaces provide low levels of creativity in which to support the type of play experiences, that we know Children would benefit greatly from. 

If you are looking to develop your outdoor space for play and learning, then get in touch. We will nurture you through an imaginative journey that engages the adult and child in active dialogue and practical hands on experiences needed to fulfil the project.

Confidence and inspiration is all you need to realise the full potential that you possess to deliver a highly engaging outdoor space to your Children, Families and Staff.

Aims:

  • To improve the outdoor experiences within your outdoor play scape
  • To engage and learn the in-depth processes used to transforming the outdoor area. Taking that initial idea scribbled on paper, through to the realisation, of providing an engaging play scape to your children. 

Outcomes

  • Review current practice in supporting and developing all aspects of the Child’s outdoor learning
  • Identify and evaluate the balance of indoor and outdoor learning by Children in our setting and create a strategy to develop a balance that is appropriately beneficial for Children
  • Assess and identify the adult role, resources and environment to take forward current practice
