Froebel Trust Short Courses

The Froebel Trust Short Courses were developed in partnership with early childhood practitioners who wanted practically focused, local courses designed to support everyone who works with and cares for young children. 


Since introducing the course in 2016, hundreds of practitioners, childminders and charity sector staff have undertaken the courses and told us what a positive impact it has had on their practice:


  • "Really relevant – able to implement immediately"
  • "I feel enthused and motivated about the simple changes I can make to improve my practice and the learning environment"
  • "Understanding the connectedness of children’s learning"
  • "I will observe more specifically what my key children can do not what they can’t do and support them to where they need to be."
  • "Help me support parents to enhance their children’s learning"
  • "I feel new ideas especially for open-ended activities and adults to be based in the activity playing too"
  • "The tutors were really enthusiastic and ignited a fire back into my practice."

We are currently offering a 50% discount on courses taking place between 1 June 2020 and 31 March 2021. The discount will be offered on a first come first serve basis. 


The standard cost of the course is £3200 for up to 25 trainees, but if you take advantage of the 50% subsidy, the cost is reduced to £1600 for a two-day course with two experienced trainers. 


If you have fewer than 25 staff, you can join up with other local settings, or well will try to help you fill any available spaces to keep the costs down.
