Swedish Early Years Pedagogy – Skogsmulle

Swedish Early Years Pedagogy – Skogsmulle

This 3 day leader course introduces the Scandinavian early years pedagogy Skogsmulle, an experiential learning methodology for children aged 3-7 years. Skogsmulle facilitates play focused development by providing learning activities in the outdoors that stimulate children’s imagination to enhance physical, mental and social development. A growing body of academic research has highlighted the need for children to have opportunities to participate in play as a means of building a strong foundation for formal learning later on in life – Skogsmulle is a proven means of achieving this.
