Fabulous Learning Centers



 Course Description: 

The great early childhood theorists Piaget, Erikson and Vygotsky have all emphasized the importance of play in the development of young children. Young children learn best in an active, hands-on environment that provides them with developmentally appropriate materials and activities. Setting up learning centers within the preschool classroom give children the experiences and play opportunities that can support their language development, problem-solving skills, social and emotional skills and gives each child the opportunity to work at their own level and be successful. Children learn best when they are interacting with items that interest them. According to the author of Preschool Appropriate Practices by Janice Beaty, the child must be able to trust their environment by experiencing the following: Awareness of the choices available; An interest in the materials (change items, often); Freedom to explore; Time to get deeply involved.    

This course contains an accompanying PLC. Separate registration is required  

 During these Professional Learning Community (PLC) sessions, educators will participate in reflective dialogue around what was discussed during the CEU training. They will elaborate on successes, challenges, and strategies that result in better programs for children in early childhood settings. This is an opportunity to learn from, with, and on behalf of each other as early childhood and out of school time professionals. 

PLC Dates: 11/06/18, 12/04/18, 01/08/18, 02/05/18, 03/05/18
