Engaging Play Spaces

November 8, 2017 @ 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM CST

Engaging Play Spaces

Facilitator: Child Australia

This workshop will provide educators with renewed inspiration on the amazing possibilities that exist when planning engaging play spaces for children, using existing space, materials and resources to provide quality learning experiences for children in education and care settings.

A rich and varied environment supports children’s learning and development. It gives them the confidence to explore and learn in a safe and secure, challenging space. Children’s learning experiences come from their interaction and engagement with their environment and the people around them. Children need warm trusting relationships in predictable, safe, stimulating and nurturing environments.

Your environment, your set up and use of space, your choice of equipment, materials and resources all contribute to children’s learning outcomes and engagement in your curriculum.

This workshop will:

  • Identify the National Quality Standard in relation to the physical environment.
  • Link environments back to theorists and service philosophy.
  • Describe the features of a quality learning environment.
  • Identify innovative and practical new idea when setting up play spaces.
