Update

As part of our organisational response to the COVID-19 virus, Children in Scotland has adapted our training and events programme to a digital webinar format for the foreseeable future.

Our webinar programme can be found here and will be updated regularly.

We may be running some of our scheduled events as abbreviated webinar versions, while others have to be cancelled or postponed until face-to-face training is possible again. Please keep an eye on our website, social media channels and Eventbrite page for updates.

If you've already booked onto any face-to-face training between now and later this year, please note that our Learning and Events team will be in touch with you should the arrangements change.

Our office is currently closed and staff will be working from home – you can contact the team using this email: events@childreninscotland.org.uk.

About this event

Pioneer Friedrich Froebel's theory that ‘play is the highest expression of childhood development; it alone is the free expression of a child’s soul’ has been applied within early years establishments across the globe. 

This workshop with the acclaimed Cowgate Under 5s Centre in Edinburgh explores practical ways to put Froebel’s theories into action in your own setting. 

Key learning:

Practical ways to meet children’s needs in the following areas identified by Froebel: 

  • Physical activity and sensory awareness 
  • Creative expression and exploration of ideas 
  •  The experience of living among others. 

Facilitator bio

At the Cowgate Under 5's, we pride ourselves on our approach to children's learning. The Centre is run with a strong, Froebelian influence, where the belief is that, through engaging with the world, understanding unfolds. Hence the significance of play - it is both a creative activity and through it children become aware of their place in the world.

Speakers & trainers

We work with more than 100 speakers and trainers to create our diverse programme.
