Froebel and Childhood Practice Course
This professional development course for those working in early education considers how a contemporary analysis of Froebel’s work can provide practitioners with insights into how they can support young children to develop as confident learners. Participants will learn about Froebelian approaches including gifts, play, and relationships in learning contexts. Participants will be encouraged and challenged to consider how this can enhance their professional practice.
