Developing engaging indoor environments for school age children
This practical session is all about exploring ways for making the best use of our indoor environments, utilising fixed and moveable structures/furniture in innovative ways, and exploring how we ‘invite’ children to engage within the indoor environment on a day-to-day basis.
Participants will be actively involved in the set-up of a variety of indoor play and learning spaces and experiences utilising a range of resources made available on the evening, reflecting on the intentionality behind these experiences, how the children may engage, the adult’s role, and how we can extend on these ideas.
We will also look at ways of incorporating mixed resources to provide more play and learning opportunities for children; how to provide inquiry-based learning spaces based on children’s interests; defining areas for solitude, socialisation, and self-regulation; and incorporating spaces to suit a variety of play types.
