Do you ever wonder about children’s repeated patterns of behavior? Why they do things over and over again? Why children play longer with a box rather than the toy that was in the box? Or why toddlers love to hide behind the coats in the cubby area? Or why a child completely covers over the painting they have spent ages creating?
The reason why is because they are developing schemas through schema play. If you would like to engage in conversation about the ways you can further support children’s schema play in your early learning environment, join the ECCDC’s Early Learning and Child Care Trainer Ginette Wilson for this new and engaging, interactive and fun workshop. Participants will find out more about Play Schemas and how to develop schema rich environments and experiences that meet children’s needs and interests. They will have opportunities to engage in thought-provoking conversations with fellow Educators and explore a variety of materials and experiences that support Schema Play.
ECCDC Pop-Up Store - participants are invited to bring a bagged lunch to enjoy while networking with their colleagues and browsing the ECCDC Pop-Up Store following the session. (11:30-12:00)
