Upcoming Training and Workshops 2019


Inviting Play Spaces


Children’s early learning and development takes place through play and hand-on experiences. Providing an inviting, well-resourced play environment inside and outside, adults can greatly enrich the learning opportunities that play provides. Inspired by a recent trip to Reggio Emilia Dee Finn has prepared a workshop for us to explore resources and materials that intrigue, challenge and empower children in their play.


All dates are now FULL.
