A magical place to learn

This course, exclusively designed for childcare practitioners working with young children, acquaints the trainees with the concept of a themed indoor environment that encourages learning and exploration among the inquisitive children, both independently and with adult guidance. Since children are quite imaginative by nature, hence taking cue from this, the course includes fairy tales as the starting point for a variety of exciting activities and practices. This course will teach you the correct approaches and give you the confidence to create your own themed space to help get your ideas to life within the four walls of a classroom.
Young children are naturally curious and want to explore and learn. If a childcare practitioner creates an environment that is richly resourced with activities, children will learn naturally from all that is around them. It is the practitioner’s skill in creating the environment that is important, and then providing the appropriate support for each child so they get the most from the activities. Wherever possible, children should be fully involved in creating their own place to learn and contribute their ideas and art work.
