The Practice Series: Setting up your first planning cycle for individual and groups of children


A well thought out and presented experience, resources or space in an early learning environment has the power to change lives. Presenting your curriculum through your experiences and environment can be a challenge and, for some, even a little repetitive. It can also be a comfort trap zone – go with the known, not willing to relinquish the power of familiarity and security. Ideal for newer educators and those who may feel they have lost that little spark of inspiration and innovation in presenting learning opportunities for the children; together, we will explore some ideas and suggestions that support practice in this area. It doesn’t take much to turn a bland table-top activity into an inviting, engaging cooperative play space. A little time, effort, and energy are vital ingredients. Most importantly, an understanding that the presentation and respect for the quality of experiences and spaces offered are critical to your pedagogical practice.
