Code: EYFS 20/00121 Building the Future – Loose Parts and Open-ended Resources (Cancelled)

This is the definitive course on Loose parts play from the leading national play specialists and is a unique exploration of the theories and practical applications of Loose Parts Theory. A child’s ability to innovate, creatively problem solve and to think “outside the box” is directly linked to the experiences they have in childhood. Open ended resources and loose parts play unlock imagination, creativity and divergent thinking in a way that no amount of formal learning or screen time can ever come close to. Self-directed play allows children to interact with their environments and work with their brains to achieve neurological and cognitive development the way their brain was always meant to learn. Research repeatedly shows that children exposed to interactive environments develop bigger, more complex, faster and more resilient brains! This course is a vibrant exploration of some amazing low cost or free resources that we can use to support children’s development and highlights the fascinating new research behind these wonderful resources. Think outside the box whilst playing with a cardboard box!
