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: 

Learn 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.
