Schema – Observing, Supporting and Responding with Marie Richardson
October 7 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
For practitioners working with children birth to five years.
Children do not all learn in the same way. As practitioners working with young children we should be aware of the ways different children learn. Schemas are patterns of repeatable behaviour which can often be noticed in young children’s play.
Although children often show particular schemas in their play, not all children appear especially schematic. Some show one particular schema particularly strongly and others show several at once. Sometimes one schema which has been particularly strong will seem to fade, possibly to be replaced by another.
Schemas offer a key to understanding ways in which children behave. In the planning process, awareness of children’s schemas can be invaluable in matching curriculum content with children’s interests and needs.
This session will explore schema and how we can support them.
This course will run 1-4pm and 5-8pm
