Creative Two Year Olds

July 3, 2015 from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm
Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom



Developing projects with little ones

More and more two year olds are now in educational settings but how can we create contexts to stimulate their creativity and learning?


This professional development day will explore how young children learn and how we can set up situations to provoke and extend their learning and play. House of Objects uses recycled materials as an inspiration for provoking basis for stimulating interest and exploration. Emma Pace is an expert in this area and will share insights into approaches and contexts for two year olds as well as practical ideas to take away and try in your setting.
