Strategies to Connect Very Young Children to Nature
This course explores children’s innate connection to nature from a very young age. We explore how we can use the elements (water, earth, air, and fire) to create environments, schema and the development of life skills as a tool for planning very young children’s learning experiences. The course will also look at the value and opportunities to promote play.
To explore the key elements that encompass a quality under 5’s naturalistic learning environment inside and outside. To explore the use of children’s schemas to plan experiences to further their learning. To develop life skills through real life experiences both indoors and outdoors.
You will be able to:
- Evaluate and design your 0-5 environment
- Use schemas to plan your children’s learning experiences
Implement and extend the use of natural elements in developing life skills
